Hey guys, what's going on? I just wanted to hop into this because about two years ago my sister punched me in the eye, and after I regained consciousness and vision, the left side of my world was in black and white (greyscale). Ever since I have had a monochromatic left eye. Who knows.... Anyways my right eye, which is my dominant eye, really makes up for it and I can hardly tell when I have both eyes open and focused. Any thoughts? [|)]ChaoticBliss
Another interesting point, more men than women are colour blind.
I myself (I'm female)
There is another odd aspect of this I saw in New Scientist a while back. There are small variations in the colour receptors, which ones you get are determined by genetics and chance. Since women get 2 copies of the red/ green receptor gene they sometimes get 2 different ones. In some circumstances this enables them to distinguish colours that are the same to other people.
seanahnuk, your science teacher is incorrect. One in 10,000 women are color deficient. Very few people are truley color blind, that means they see no color at all. Color deficient is the correct term, since most people only have a problem with certain colors or shades. I myself (I'm female) cannot see green if it is mixed with brown, such as olive shades.
