deuteranomaly

A type of anomalous trichromatism in which an abnormally high proportion of green is needed when mixing red and green light to match a given yellow. This is the most common type of colour vision deficiency, occurring in about 4.6% of males and 0.35% of the female population. Syn. deuteranomalous trichromatism; deuteranomalous vision; green-weakness. See anomaloscope; defective colour vision.
