If you have trouble seeing certain colors, your doctor, in addition to performing an eye exam, will perform tests to help determine if your color vision is impaired.
To do this, they will use subjective tests in which the patient is shown graphics with geometric drawings (circles of various volumes and tones), in whose center are printed numbers that can only be seen by people with normal color acuity. In the case of children, one way to find out if they suffer from color blindness is by observing how they color the drawings.
Although there is no specific treatment for color blindness, unless it is caused by the intake of some drugs or other conditions, it is important to detect it early, since it can cause learning problems in children and professional limitations in adults.
Using a certain color filter over your glasses or a colored contact lens will help your vision better distinguish colors that are difficult for you to see. However, this will not increase your visual abilities to better distinguish all colors.
