Pharmacy is another line where colour vision should be good. A great many tablets rely to some extent on colour for their identification. If colour blindness has been found - either accidentally or after a medical examination on entering some trade or profession - is there anything which can be done about it? Unfortunately, the answer is 'No'. However, there is one comfort.

Colour blindness seems to bear no relation to poor or defective vision. It is almost always a problem with which one is born. Colour blindness tends to be hereditary. It may occasionally be found because of some other relatively trivial physical defect. It seems doubtful whether a cure will be found. Fortunately, there are many jobs where lack of colour sense is not a serious drawback. For such sufferers it is well to leave tie-choosing to someone else and to watch the position of the lights at traffic signals!

There is a tiny minority of patients who are colour-blind in only one eye and I believe these people are of great value in research into the cause of the disability.
