How NYC looks through eyes that are colorblind
Color blindness affects around one in 12 men and one in 200 women in the world. There are three main types of color blindness - tritanopia which is the inability to process blue light and affects men and women equally; deuteranopia confuses green colors with red, yellow, grey and pink; and protanopia is the inability to process red light.
Kathryn Albany-Ward, CEO of Colour Blind awareness UK says "people with color blindness may struggle with: driving, using maps and way-finding information, but also understanding any information only provided with color, such as textbooks and educational resources. Despite videos of glasses circulating on social media, which claim to solve color blindness, there is no cure."
Here we take a look at how New York City can look to people living with color blindness.
