Tthere is no treatment for co lour blind ness. It is a congenital deficiency. Rehabilitation training can be given to live with this problem and train to accommodate by other means to avoid dangerous cosiquances. You will always be unfit where you have to identify co lour, like driving train piloting pilot for plan, armed force job. There are many jobs for which you will be fit. Don't hide it before any selection.

i am a girl of 17. By birth i am suffering from complete color blindness.I also have nystagmus. I feel very difficult to see in sunlight. I cannot open my eyes well in places with more light. In bright light i have to make my eyes very small so that i can see a little. I feel something is obstructing my sight in the middle part. I even cannot see on the board which has effected my study a lot. I have lost many oppourtunities because of this problem. Doctor said it is just nystagmus here in Nepal but i feel it is cone dystrophy. Can you say me what it is? if it is cone dystrophy then is the treatment possible? I really hope there is something which can make me a normal girl. I want to live a normal life.. please help me
