daltonism

Term used formerly to designate colour blindness, usually deutan, so named because John Dalton (1766-1844) was the first to describe his own anomaly. See defective colour vision.

People with daltonism can distinguish the difference between red and green, but see red and green differently than people with normal color vision.
The difference in stereoacuity between people with normal color vision and people with daltonism when adding chromatic information has not been reported.
The stereoacuity evaluated with red-green and black-white symbols was significantly different for people with daltonism and not significantly different for people with normal color vision.
Porter points out, the name Dalton suggests Daltonism, a form of color blindness (91).
