quick question

I have been wondering about this for awhile.

I know with ON the red or green color spectrum may appear dim. but, I have had a huge amount of trouble for the last couple of years telling Blue and Purple apart.

Is this indicitive of ON? is it in the same color pallet as Green or Red?

I have always found it odd and frustrating, especially when filling out from where I have to use blue ink only, and the ink looks purple to me, I have noticed it with other things too.

Re: quick question

Blue and purple are very different from differentiating between red and green. Red and green are opposites - blue and purple are next to each other on the color wheel. A lot of people have trouble telling the difference between blue and purple.

Re: quick question

And remember, red and blue MAKE purple.

Color usually comes back after ON although it can take a while (often the last thing to return) although even in those who fully recover there can be a SLIGHT remnant, but barely noticeable.

Good to see you!

Re: quick question

I've had ON two times in my left eye and some of my color vision came back. HOwever, things still are a wee bit different colors when I shut one eye versus the other. But, it is not a drastic change at all!

Goodluck! HOpe it gets better.
