What numbers do you see revealed in the patterns of dots below?
I am color blind, as is about 12 - 20 percent (depending on whose figures you want to believe) of the white, male population and a tiny fraction of the female population. Most of these circles are nothing but spots to me. Below are the correct answers to what a person with normal color vision would see - and what I see (and most people with Red-Green color blindness). When you see what we can't see, you may understand why it's so tough to find the right sox and why we like bright colors, which are often identifiable.

    Color Blindness W hen I was a kid in kindergarten, my parents never knew why I got low grade in identifying the color of crayons. Not until the day I was responsible for an Open Day project on color blindness in my secondary school did I noticed that I am one of the 'victim'. Though I was not blamed for the low grade then, restriction on choosing my job twenty years later frustrated me somehow. C olor blindness is an inaccurate term for a lack of perceptual sensitivity to certain colors. Absolute color blindness is almost unknow. There are three types of color receptors in our eyes, red, green and blue. We also have black and white receptors. They are more sensitive than the color receptors, that is why we have poor color perception in the dark.
    C olor blindness comes as a result of a lack of one or more of the types of color receptors. Most color perception defects are for red or green or both. About 10% of males have a color perception defect, but this is rare in females. Red-green color blindness is a result of a lack of red receptors.
    A nother form of color blindness yellow-blue is the second most common form, but it's extremely rare. It is also possible to have the color receptors missing entirely, which would result in black and white vision.

similar to your vision without glasses while awake (if you wear glasses)
similar to your vision with glasses while awake (if you wear glasses)
worse than your vision while awake (without glasses, if applicable) better than your vision while awake (even with glasses, if applicable) the same as your vision while awake (for people who don't wear glasses) variable (click only once) This is an informational site dedicated to a method of restoring eyesight naturally, without surgery, drugs or glasses. The Bates Method is a natural method to restore eyesight that was discovered in the early 20th century by ophthalmologist William H. Bates. Through examining and experimenting with thousands of patients, he learned that most vision problems are due to habits of tension associated with the process of seeing. He developed techniques that teach people to see in a relaxed way that promotes perfect vision.

About This Site
Since early 2002, I have been communicating with Dr. Ken Tittle, who founded Mariposa, a Christian ministry to train people with disabilities to work as peer counselors and to facilitate full inclusion in the church community. Mariposa's work was solely with people with mobility impairments until 2002, at which time Dr. Tittle contacted me and asked if I would be willing to participate and provide some information about blindness and my experiences as a person who is blind. Recently, he explained his thoughts and questions more thoroughly to me. His thoughts express the reasons for my building this site more clearly than anything I could have written.

Welcome to VIBES !
The Visual Impairments and Blindness Expert System (VIBES) will help answer questions and give advice.

You can then see products (and services) for Braille, and find the organizations (or people) where you can get the products. This introductory version of VIBES, containing only 35 topics, is intended to demonstrate how VIBES works, and inspire you to submit topics to VIBES. We hope VIBES grows to over 5,000 topics within 5 years. Anyone can contribute information to VIBES. Click the construction icon below for instructions on how you can become a co-author of VIBES. If this is your first time using VIBES, it is best to start by selecting the help icon. Then read the information about VIBES and don't forget to see this ! Then you are ready to select one of the categories listed below. If you can not find the information you are looking for, please contact the editor so we can add it.

F or more free information about eye safety at home and at work, call 1-800-331-2020. We want all Americans to be aware of the dangers to their eyes at home, in the workplace and while playing sports. Thousands of eye accidents happen each day; 90 percent of these are preventable with the use of appropriate safety eyewear. Because there are good eye safety regulations in the workplace, the home is the source of the fastest-growing number of eye injuries. Eye injuries are almost as great a danger to bystanders as the people using dangerous tools or chemicals in the home. Good eye protection is just as important for those watching you work as for the workers themselves. Home Eye Problems Test Your Eyes Children Safety News Resources Search What's New ... Contact Us
