“Innumerable Web sites and charts and graphs used in business are just mush to me,” said Jim Doane. Font colors and background colors make the reading impossible for Doane. He is one of the two in one hundred males (and rare females) who is severely affected by color vision deficiency (CVD) or colorblindness. He, like most people so affected, does see blue and yellow, so he is not “blind” to color.
A former school nurse, Arlene Evans became interested in CVD when she realized how common it is the challenges people face because of the condition. When she could find no literature for children or teens regarding this disorder, she wrote Seeing Color: Its My Rainbow, Too for children and Color is in the eye of the Beholder for teens and adults.
