That's not how most colorblindness works. I can see blue, but purple evades me, for the most part, and I can see some greens but others simply don't show to me. What I see when I look at a color is pretty different from a person with good color vision, but not in the ways most people think.
Green and brown mostly look the same to me. So do pink and gray, and as said above, blue & purple. A green traffic light looks white and I can't tell the difference between the orange and red lights. Cataracts and age seem to be making it worse.
Stigmas are getting better but when I was a kid I had teachers punish me for not learning colors in art class. I could see some colors, so they figured I couldn't be colorblind.
Now there are glasses that they claim can compensate.
Why ain't we ridin'?
