Your score: 4

A lower score is better, with ZERO being the perfect score. The bars above show the regions of the color spectrum where hue discrimination is low.

I got an 18. The blue/green range got me a little but I had the most trouble with reds..
BTW guys, remember, it isn't just your eyes but also the monitor. I don't think many of us have calibrated the colors for our monitors.

Room lighting also plays a big role.

I guess I should get off my ass and get a HUEY for my monitor since ince I do a lot of photo editing on my mac.

Too lazy to do this. I already failed a color test the last time I got my prescription renewed so no use kicking a dead horse. I'm not completely colorblind but I have a hard time distinguishing small variations in color.

Ok, apparently they pulled the stolen image I had of the T-shirt hell pic about color blind

Sorry for any offense that the replacement pic may have caused. it wasn't my idea.
