CBC: Color Blindness Check
For this little tool we got our inspiration from Cal Henderson , who made a page showing the effects several types of color blindness can have on the readability of a web site.
We thought Cal did a nice job and since we are doing two projects where accessibility for people with a disability is a major issue, we thought we might add a little of our own to his work.
CBC is a little tool we made for people to test their webpages with. It re-colorizes any webpage you like into a palette that closely resembles the typical palette available to a person having a red/green color vision deficiency. (This is the most common color blindness. Comparing Cal Henderson's data, it comes closest to Protanopia.)
Below we describe two ways to use CBC.
Both require Internet Explorer 5.0 or more on a Windows PC.
There is some chance that even then CBC will not work... in that case you need to install the latest DirectX drivers.

This site is designed with two purposes in mind: 1. to provide encouragement to people who are dealing with mental illness. I have dealt with it in my life as well as observed as friends have dealt with it in theirs. I also have my BA in psychology and plan to go into pastoral counseling. While this does not give me the qualifications to offer professional counseling, it has given me some basic knowledge of how research is conducted, how to find the information I want, and what the various mental illnesses are. I hope to help other people to understand what they are going through and to know that there is hope and help. 2. I hope to help therapists by providing a patient's perspective on issues which are not often discussed and to raise questions which may provoke additional research or discussion. Part of helping others obtain the help they need is helping therapists understand the issues their clients face. There is a lot more to the average client than is in the textbooks, and I am sure that therapists know this. Of course, I wouldn't advocate getting rid of the textbooks and scientific studies. However, I do advocate listening to the perspectives of clientsyours or someone else'sbecause they are equally valuable in determining whether or not a given type of therapy hits the mark.

What numbers do you see revealed in the patterns of dots below?
I am color blind, as is about 12 - 20 percent (depending on whose figures you want to believe) of the white, male population and a tiny fraction of the female population. Most of these circles are nothing but spots to me. Below are the correct answers to what a person with normal color vision would see - and what I see (and most people with Red-Green color blindness). When you see what we can't see, you may understand why it's so tough to find the right sox and why we like bright colors, which are often identifiable.

How color blindness works ... Links to other Sites about Color Deficiency What colorblindness is:
  • Color blindness (color vision deficiency) is a condition in which certain colors cannot be distinguished, and is most commonly due to an inherited condition. Red/Green color blindness is by far the most common form, about 99%, and causes problems in distinguishing reds and greens. Another color deficiency Blue/Yellow also exists, but is rare and there is no commonly available test for it. Depending on just which figures you believe, color blindness seems to occur in about 8% - 12% of males of European origin and about one-half of 1% of females. I did not find any figures for frequency in other races. Total color blindness (seeing in only shades of gray) is extremely rare. There is no treatment for color blindness, nor is it usually the cause of any significant disability. However, it can be very frustrating for individuals affected by it. Those who are not color blind seem to have the misconception that color blindness means that a color blind person sees only in black and white or shades of gray. While this sort of condition is possible, it is extremely rare. Being color blind does keep one from performing certain jobs and makes others difficult.

Glaucoma: The Second-Leading Cause
of Blindness in the U.S.
By Judith Lee and Gretchyn Bailey
reviewed by Dr. Vance Thompson Your eye has pressure just like your blood, and when this intraocular pressure (IOP) increases to dangerous levels, it damages the optic nerve . This can result in decreased peripheral vision and, eventually, blindness. Glaucoma is similar to ocular hypertension but with accompanying optic nerve damage and vision loss. Glaucoma affects an estimated 3 million Americans, with 120,000 blind due to the condition. Elsewhere in the world, glaucoma treatment is less available, and glaucoma ranks as a leading cause of blindness just about everywhere. Even if people with glaucoma do not become blind, vision can be severely impaired. There are two major types of glaucoma: chronic or primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and acute closed-angle glaucoma. Other variations include congenital glaucoma, pigmentary glaucoma and secondary glaucoma.
Glaucoma Signs and Symptoms
Chronic glaucoma (primary open-angle glaucoma or POAG) is often called "the silent thief of sight" because you have no warning sign, no hint that anything is wrong. About half of Americans with chronic glaucoma don't know they have it. Glaucoma gradually reduces your peripheral vision, but by the time you notice it, permanent damage has already occurred. If your IOP remains high, the destruction can progress until tunnel vision develops, and you will only be able to see objects that are straight ahead.

40. Face Blind! Bill's Face Blindness (Prosopagnosia) Pages - Introduction
A personal account of face blindness (prosopagnosia), by a sufferer.
This is the world's first (and to date only) book about face blindness. It has been published on the Internet so people in all lands can have access to it readily, and so it can be continuously updated. In these pages, you will find information, much of which is not available anywhere else at this time. Until people with this rare condition began to meet each other on the Internet in mid-1996, assembling this kind of information would not have been possible. Even researchers who have had hopes of specializing in this condition have been frustrated by having seen only a handful of subjects over a lifetime. With the advent of the Internet, face blind people are coming together in heretofore unheard of numbers, and much is being learned with each passing month. This document was first published as "Bill's Face Blindness Pages" in January, 1997, based on information learned in the fall of 1996. Since then, it has grown considerably, to become the document you will now see.
