Are you color blind Know somebody who is color blind Think somebody is color blind Contrary to the name color blind, most color blind people are not blind to color. A more accurate description is color deficient. We see color. You just don't see it the same as we do. (Perhaps it is really you who are color deficient and we are normal.) About 1 in 20 males are color blind. About 1 in 200 women are color blind.
