Did you know that one in 20 people suffers from colour blindness? I did not, though I did once date a guy who was colour blind. After we’d been together a year, Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl” came on the radio this one time and he said “This song always makes me think of you, ’cause you’re my brown eyed girl.” My eyes are blue. Or maybe he was just drunk that day. He was drunk a lot. Regardless, I’m pretty sure he was also colour blind.
The above image, the cover of Poison’s “Look What the Cat Dragged In,” has been run through a colour blindness simulator to reflect what someone with protonapia would see. Protonapia is one of three common colour blindess conditions and is a lack of the “long-wavelength sensitive retinal cones that are required to distinguish between colors in the green-yellow-red section of the spectrum.”
