5 Things People Who are Colorblind (and Their Doctors) Want You to Know - U.S. News & World Report

If you’ve seen “The Giver,” you’ve gotten a glimpse of what it might be like to live in a black and white world. What it’s not like? Being colorblind. “Sometimes people think, because of the way the word is, that I can’t see anything where there’s a color,” says Ivan Oransky, a medical journalist in New York who’s colorblind. “I see something – it’s just not what you’re seeing.”

Not only is the “game” no fun, but it’s also beside the point for people who are colorblind. The challenge for most isn’t seeing objects or naming colors, per se, but...
