What is it about?

Color vision deficiency (CVD), is the inability or decreased ability to distinguish between different colors. We present a case of schizophrenia with congenital CVD. This case suggests that CVD patients might misunderstand the color of medications, which might lead to medication errors, or poor drug adherence.

Why is it important?

Patients with schizophrenia usually have multiple types of visual processing impairments, including color vision impairments. Thus, care and support for those patients are needed, in order to avoid medication errors, or improve medication adherence.


I hope this article will lead to a better understanding of patient with color vision deficiency.
