    Does anyone know of any way to tell if a child is colorblind? My son has been pointing to things and calling them red when they are green. It only seems to be materials that are reflective, like the green neon light up on the wall at Targetm, he asked what that red thing was. Then I pointed to a bottle of Gain on the shelf and asked him what color it was and he said Red. So the shiny neon light and the shiny plastic bottle he got the color wrong, but then a piece of colored paper (flat finish) he knew was green. He hasn't called any red things green, though, it's only the one way. I'm not sure if he sees the color wrong or just makes a mistake since he's just 3.

    Cassie, I've never had an experience with colorblindness. I would call the pediatrician and see what they say. I have two boys but they never did that. At least not that I can recall.

    I have never had expirence with this either. Have you tried going to www.babycenter.com? I use them as helpful tool whenever I have a question or wonder things about baby/toddler development. Iwould also call my pediatrician like CIndy said.

    I'm going to call. He also has an eye dr. apt in a few months to make sure he doesn't have what DD has. It's hereditary and better if you catch it early. So I can wait and have him look at my son for the color thing, too, I guess.

    The test for colorblindness is basically lots of dots that are red and there is a number in green dots amongst the red ones...if the child is colorblind he cant see the number just a lot of dots. you could probably do this at home using markers.

    My Dad was colorblind and so is my youngest nephew. An optomitrist can easily detect it and your pediatrician should be able to also.

    I may break out the markers just to see ahead of time. But I will check officially with the doctor's office.

    Age 3 might be a little early to make a determination on colorblindness. My DH is CB and we were worried that my DD would be at the same age. She isn't. I do know the CB is more common in males. Is your DH Colorblind?

    Cass, I have seen the colorbindness tests online before. Try Discovery Health I think. I have to go check my msn page to be sure. Then you wouldn't have to do the marker thing.

    I went and found link, maybe that will help you a bit.

    wow well it says 3 years you can test them. Looks like they have shape test rather than numbers which should be easier for that age.

    You know I've never thought about it affecting things like telling if your food is done or not!
