Contrary to popular belief, color blindness doesn’t actually mean that people see the world in black and white. In fact, more than 99% of all colorblind people do see color.

There are several variations of vision deficiency, such as Deuteranomalia (which makes everything look a little faded), Protanopia (which makes everything seem a little green), and Tritanopia (greenish-pink tones), and only around 0.00003% of the world’s population suffers from total color blindness (Monochromacy).
