What is it like to be
colour blind?

Try out the colour blind vision simulator

If you don't suffer from colour blindness it can be difficult to imagine what those who are colour blind actually see. We can only imagine what it's like. Therefore, we have created the Pilestone expert colour blind vision simulator to help you understand what it's like when you live in a world without colour.

HOW TO USE THE COLOUR BLIND SIMULATOR

You can either use the image provided or you can upload your own.

Simply choose a type of colour blindness which you would like to view. There are eight types to experiment with under the four categories of colour blindness: deutan, protan, tritan, and black/white.

Click the type in which you'd like to view and the simulated picture will adjust accordingly. This is an accurate representation of what those with that given deficiency would actually see.

Why not try some family photographs, familiar places, or memorable moments in our colour blind image simulator and see what they look like through the eyes of those who are colour blind?

WHAT IS COLOUR BLINDNESS?

Colour blindness is where someone sees colours in a different way. It can affect the way they see reds, greens, browns, oranges, blues, purples, pinks, and yellows. Making it difficult for them to distinguish between these colours.

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHAT COLOUR BLIND PEOPLE SEE?

People who are colour blind see the world like we do but their eyes interpret the colours differently. For example, one of the more common forms of colour blindness is a red and green colour deficiency. This is where individuals struggle to differentiate between colours including reds, greens, oranges, and browns. This can make everyday tasks such as driving a little more complicated, obstacles such as traffic lights can be challenging and dangerous, especially if they're not familiar with the area. There are also other types of colour blindness, these include blue deficiencies and monochrome colour blindness. You can also view these using our colour blind vision simulator above. For the most accurate experience, we recommend uploading a recognisable image, allowing you to see different shades of colour and how someone with this condition would see them.

Pilestone is here to help you experience life in full colour, leaving nothing to the imagination!

HOW DO I FIND OUT IF I AM COLOUR BLIND?

After using the colour blind glasses simulator, if you too would like to see if you have one of the eight possible colour deficiencies, you can use our free scientifically proven colour blind test. The test takes no longer than two minutes to complete, providing accurate results regarding the type of colour blindness (if any) and the severity of colour blindness you may or may not have.
