Ever wondered how a color blind person sees the world? These extraordinary images provide an inside look into a color blind person’s vision.

In an attempt to highlight the struggles of color blind individuals, Professor Jay Neitz at the University of Washington has created a series of images that shows how deuteranopia, the type of color blindness that affects red and green, makes completing everyday tasks a challenge.

Placing images seen by a person with normal vision and a person who is color blind next to each other, Neitz shows the exhausting difficulty a color blind person experiences when simply taking on something the average person takes for granted.

From cooking meat to picking out the right Crayon color, Neitz proves color blindness “causes problems in the real world.”

Color blindness affects 300 million people worldwide and Neitz hopes that by showcasing the struggles of color blind individuals, companies will be better able to cater to this group.

He writes, “In your presentations, color should be used with care to ensure that your color blind colleagues can see.”

By further understanding what a color blind person endures can we then as a society be better able to lend a more considerate helping hand.
