When Dr. Elizabeth Martin learned that her son was struggling with color blindness, she informed his school teacher. Naturally, adjustments were made in class to cater to the child’s color deficiency. However, Dr. Martin was concerned that some of her son’s classmates may also be color blind. She spoke with the school district superintendent; and, a plan was developed to test 11,000 students in grades K-12 throughout the semester.
“I volunteered to help the nurses test and realized many of these kids had no idea they were colorblind,” Martin said.
