Mondo Description Deuteranopia is a type of color vision deficiency where the green photoreceptors are absent. It affects hue discrimination in the same way as protanopia, but without the dimming effect. Like protanopia, it is hereditary, sex-linked, and found in about 1% of the male population.
Uniprot Description A color vision defect characterized by a dichromasy in which red and green are confused, without loss of luminance or shift or shortening of the spectrum. Dichromasy is due to the use of only two types of photoreceptors, blue plus red in deuteranopia and blue plus green in protanopia.
