66 Years Old Bodybuilder Sees Color for the First Time

Sometimes we take a lot of things for granted and forgot the impact of simply being grateful for the little things in life.

Take the case of William who has been colorblind since birth. Color blindness or color vision deficiency is the decreased ability to see color or differences in color. It is a hereditary condition occurring in approximately 1 in 12 men and 1 in 200 women. There are different types of color blindness but the most common is known as ‘red-green color blindness.’

The human eye can see color because of 6 million retinal cone cells in our eyes that respond to one of the three primary colors of light: red, green, and blue. People with color blindness can usually still see colors but have color confusions or see certain pairs of colors so similarly that they cannot tell them apart.
