    Is it possible to be colorblind in one eye only?


    Yes and no. The genetic types of color blindness that are more common in males cannot occur in one eye. However a congenital or acquired disorder of the optic nerve and/or macula can decrease the color vision in one eye if the problem is present in only one eye. Color deficits in one eye need a work-up to determine the cause.
