De acordo com o tipo de cone afetado ou ausente, existem tres tipos de discromopsia: (1) na protanopia, os individuos tem menor sensibilidade aos comprimentos de onda longos, que causam a sensacao de vermelho; (2) na deuteranopia, a sensibilidade e menor aos comprimentos de ondas medianas, responsaveis pelo verde; e (3) na tritanopia, a deficiencia nao permite a identificacao das cores relacionadas a comprimentos de ondas mais curtos (azul) (Fraser & Banks, 2007).
Regardless of the type of colour blindness that a patient presents with (protanopia, deuteranopia, tritanopia), it is important to remember that no tinted contact lens will restore colour vision to levels that are perceived by the normal population.
