By the way: the Linux Gnome Desktop has a special "libcolorblind0" to adjust the screen for people suffering from color deficiencies. For Mac and PC there are several tools to adjust a computer display to the type of your color deficiency. Do mind that both eyes aren't equal in some instances. Are you a Daltonist too?
