Now, about your color vision… My experience is that most people with color vision difficulties have no idea that their color vision isn’t the same as anyone else’s. The colors they see look fine to them; those colors just aren’t the same colors that other people see.
If you are having a full eye examination, ask if you will be having your color vision checked. Color vision is not checked by every examiner or at every exam; but, if you ask it will be checked.
If you are a Prunedale Vision Center patient, Dr. Hisle will routinely check your color vision at your yearly eye exam..
Most color vision problems are inherited. If there is anyone in your family with color vision problems, especially if it is your mother’s father (your maternal grandfather) or a brother, have your color vision tested.
