What is Colorblindness?

Colorblindness is a vision problem that impairs one's ability to see colors normally. It is usually a genetic mutation that occurs on the X chromosome. Colorblindness occurs in 8% of males and 0.5% of females. There are several types of colorblindness which include deuteranopia, protanopia, and tritanopia. Deuteranopia, or red-green colorblindness is the most common type of colorblindness. Affected individuals have a hard time distinguishing between reds and greens, but also other colors. Those with Protanopia have a hard time distinguishing between blue and green as well as red and green. Those affected by Tritanopia, the most rare type of colorblindness, confuse blue with green and yellow with violet.

Why Make AmplifEye?

AmplifEye's aim is to tackle the problem of colorblindness. Our target audience includes all people who are affected by colorblindness, specifically those who suffer from Deuteranopia, Tritanopia, and Protanopia. 8% of men and 0.5% of women are colorblind, which is about one out of twelve men and one out of two hundred women. Colorblindness is an obstacle and hindrance in the lives of those affected, and we strive to mitigate the negative effects through our creation.

Support the Cause

National Association for the Advancement of Color-Blind People (NAACBP)

The mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Color-Blind People is to facilitate change in areas where color-blind people face a disadvantage because of color inequality, as well as to work to remove these hurdles that exist for the color-blind. We are dedicated to promoting changes concerning confusion and misunderstandings due to non-color-blind friendly situations, education of color-blindness, and early identification and awareness. In facilitating change we hope to create more flexibility in fields where color-blind people have been left at a disadvantage or completely excluded.
