How to use the colorblind simulator

You can either use our image provided our alternatively you can also upload your own. Once you’ve decided on an image you can begin using the simulator.
To begin, simply choose a type of color blindness which you would like to view. There are eight types to experiment with under the four categories of color 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 those with that given deficiency would actually see.
Why not try some family photographs, familiar places, or memorable moments and see how they too look through the eyes of those who are color blind.

What is color blindness?

Color blindness is where an individual sees colors in a different way. For example, this may result in reds, greens, browns, oranges, blues, purples, pinks and yellows being difficult to distinguish between. It is thought that color blindness affects between five to ten percent of the entire population of the United States. That’s anywhere from 1.6 million to 3.2 million people.

Have you ever wondered what color blind people see?

The majority of those who are colorblind see the world in a very similar way but often interpret these colors differently. For example, one of the more common forms of color blindness is a red and green color deficiency. This is where individuals struggle to differentiate between colors 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 color blindness, these include blue deficiencies and monochrome color blindness. You can also view these using our simulator above. For the most accurate experience, we recommend uploading a recognizable image, allowing you to see different shades of color how someone with this condition would see them.

How do I find out if I am color blind?

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