If we are born with colour blindness , why can’t the brain adapt to the eye? If the baby is told by the parent this is blue and the child sees something else they will learn it as blue right?

In: Biology

There are different types of color blindness.

And of course children can learn relationally, attributing what they see to the tones and the name taught to them.

Yes, they almost always have relative color sight and many people with mild color blindness don’t know they’re color blind until they’re adults and get tested. Just makes it harder to distinguish certain colors as they view them as being nearly the same

If you ever get the chance to use those glasses that allow color blind people to see the full spectrum, I highly recommend it.

they don’t see different colors. they see two colors as the same and it becomes impossible to distinguish.

this light might look exactly the same as green to the child. so how can they tell blue vs green?

There is less color information to work with… I am partially color blind and have no issue with pure colors, but have issues detecting where tone is similar but with added color. No problem with blue, but can only tell it’s purple if in context of comparing to blue to notice variation. Similar for things like dark greens vs. browns. Or sometimes something like a light orange vs. bright green… I’m thinking specifically like those odd concept car colors you see on futuristic cars at auto shows. I can tell it’s a bright color and has a yellow component along with other colors but sometimes can’t sus out whether it’s red or blue in addition.
