  11. 11. Monochromacy Caused by widespread retinal rod or cone defect/absence Rod Monochromacy: associated with Male Female photophobia, light Monochromacy (all) 0.000001% 0.000001% sensitivity and poor vision. Cone Monochromacy: Otherwise normal vision. RARE. VERY RARE.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_blindness
  12. 12. Dichromacy Protanopia - Red deficient: L cone absent Male Female Deuteranopia - Green Dichromacy (all) 2.4% 0.03% deficient: M cone Protanopia 1% to 1.3% 0.02% absent Deuteranopia 1% to 1.2% 0.01% Tritanopia - Blue Tritanopia 0.001% 0.03% deficient: S cone absent LESS RARE.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_blindness
