Doctor :   Diagnosing color-vision deficiency early may prevent learning problems during the school years, since many learning materials rely heavily on color perception. If your child has a color deficiency, be sure to speak with his or her teachers about it, so they can plan their lessons accordingly.
Doctor :   Some people use special lenses for color blindness, which are filters available in either contact lens or eyeglass lens form. They are available from a limited number of eyecare practitioner.
Doctor :   You can also learn ways to work around your inability to pick out certain colors. For instance, you might organize and label your clothing to avoid color clashes. (Ask friends or family members to help!) And you might remember the order of things rather than their color (for example, the red light is at the top of a traffic light)
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   any doubts
User :   ya sir
