The healthy human eye perceives usually light between 400 and 700 nm of wavelengths. Variations are inherited or acquired and are named "colourblind". Affected persons usually manage their life well, but their dyschromatopsia becomes an issue in context of technological sources of light, which possess narrow spectra of frequency. In this talk the chemistry of colour vision, the reasons for and the kinds of colour blindness will be discussed. In some examples it will be shown that you as a publishing chemist can become a problem to the affected persons. The top 5 of problematic colour combinations are: red/yellow, green/yellow, red/black, green/black, pink/white.
