Colour Vision Deficiency (CVD), or colour blindness, refers to the inability to distinguish different shades of colour.  The majority of people who suffer from CVD do see colours, but they have difficulty in distinguishing certain shades of colours.  This is most commonly manifested with shades of red and green pairings and also with shades of blue and yellow pairings which can result in a difficulty in identifying shapes and sizes.
