There’s a case where a colorblind man regained his color vision at age 70. Sure, he had a traumatic head injury, but how is that possible? It’s generally accepted that there is no cure for color blindness. But if this man was cured, is it possible for everyone to be? The answer is yes.
What do we know?
- Guys get it way more often.
- Some people get it with age
- White boys get it the most.
- It may worsen over time.
- It’s a spectrum disorder. [physically and literally]
- Having an eye disorder, such as glaucoma or macular degeneration
- Taking a medication called plaquenil, for arthritis
- Chronic alcoholism
- Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease
- Certain cancers, such as leukemia
So using our logic from the human brain model and showing that the brain is an entropy engine, we’ve theorized about main vision and brain conditions being reversible. If the brain heals itself, which we know it does on a regular basis. If these things are true, what is colorblindness? And if myopia is reversible, why shouldn’t colorblindness be as well?
Bates saw a correlation in amblyopia and color blindness. Meaning, basically those people that couldn’t see, couldn’t see colors either. Not a revolutionary thought. But as he worked with them in his techniques, not only did their vision get better, but their color blindness saw improvements as well.
So if your brain can’t interpret light well, it may just not be able to interpret light well [the quality of the image or colors may suffer]. As always, though, this comes with a ray of hope. Why? If we can tie general vision to color vision, and low vision to low color vision. And we can improve low vision and see improvements in low color vision. We know that eyesight is correctable. That means that color vision is correctable.
