If your color blindness is not inherited then it can be caused by a number of different diseases and you should see a doctor immediately after realizing your vision is not the same to prevent any serious condition.

It is the light sensitive cells in the retina that fail to respond appropriately to variations of light that allow people to see many different colors. The different forms of this disorder are caused by deficiencies in certain types of cones in the retina or not having any at all. Cones are sensitive to light and are responsible for why we are able to see color in our vision. If the disorder is not inherited then it can be caused by one of many different diseases. Some examples are Parkinson’s disease, cataracts, epilepsy, kallman’s syndrome, and many more. Color blindness can also be caused by the aging process when you get older. When you age your retina cells might start to get damaged and that causes your vision to worsen. You can also have color blindness if it is caused by a head injury that affects areas of the brain where vision processes take place.
