Being colour blind, or colour vision deficient, can sometimes go undetected for years, but with the help of Christopher Nixon Optometrist in Starbeck you can put you or your family to the test. 

Affecting 4.5% of the British population, being colour vision deficient means that your perception of colour is different to most people. 

How many people are colour blind or colour vision deficient?

Whilst only 1 in 200 women are colour vision deficient, the number is significantly higher in men affecting 1 in 12. 

This drastic difference is due to the difference in XX or XY chromosomes in men and women. 

2.7 million people are colour vision deficient in the UK. 

Take the test to see if you're colour vision deficient...

If you'd like to talk to someone who can help with your vision the team at Christopher Nixon Optometrist in Starbeck would love to hear from you.

Hear what happened when Beth Parsons talked to optometrist Giles Price from Christopher Nixon in Starbeck and Sam Roser a local Harrogate customer who is colour vision deficient.
