Highly unlikely. Eye color and color blindness are not determined the same way within your DNA. -Eye color depends on what color your eyes your parents have and the dominance of specific traits and alleles. -Color blindness is linked primarily to gender. It's a sex linked mutation and occurs...
I don't think color-blindness would have much of an effect on an individual. Most colorblind people can still see in color, but have a deficiently in one of their cones. They might confuse similar looking colors. People with this mild type usually don't even know they're colorblind until they run...

For the majority of people who are in the military there are two options. Traditional Laser-Assisted in situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) or Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK).. The short answer is PRK. The long answer follows: LASIK is a procedure in which the cornea has a small flap cut into it using...

Dogs are not completely color blind since they have a dichromatic color perception.Unlike humans who have three different color sensitive cone cellsin their retina ( red , green and blue) dogs have only two (yellow and blue). This does not mean that dogs can't see green or red objects!
"Depending on just which figures you believe, color blindness seems to occur in about 8% - 12% of males of European origin..." ( Color / Zelanski & Fisher/ 6th ed.)
In a sense you are correct. The sky is every color in the rainbow including green. The reason we see blue is because in the spectrum this is the last color that doesn't disperse throughout the atmosphere before it reaches our eyes.
It changes the shape of the cornea, which changes the focal length.Both the cornea and the lens act together (like a compound cameralens) to focus the image on the retina.
Well i speak from knowing somebody with this issue... they usually have trouble distinguishing all sorts of colors as well as brightness.

During Surgery The surgery should take less than 30 minutes. You will lie on your back in a reclining chair in an exam room containing the laser system.

Only with surgery.
Blind people are not able to see body language, or see facial expressions. So this can sometimes cause awkwardness, if they don't realize what affect something they say has on a person. And sometimes they won't know what facial expression they're using, never having seen it before; they might think...
yes it will because the colorblind gene is located in the x chromosome. if the mother is colorblind, she has the gene in both of her x- chromosomes. She will pass down the gene and because the father passes down a y chromosome, it doesn't matter if the father is colorblind or not.
I'm not sure what this question is asking, but yes. river blindness from ANY river is possible.

I am colour blind and yet I can see colours, at least I think I can. Confused?, you should try it from my side. My problem is, I could ask you 'what is it like not to be colour blind'. Very few people are actually 100% without any colour vision, most have trouble in just one section of the colour...
Ok this was a new one for me. I always thought that dogs were color blind. I don't know where I got that idea from, but it stuck. Looks like I was wrong all these years. Research conducted by Neitz J, Geist T, and Jacobs G H shows that while dogs see less color than we do , they are far from being...

The majority of legally blind people's eyes can detect light from dark but not enough to be able to 'see' in a practical sense, so the answer for those is yes.
