Color vision deficiency is mostly inherited and occurs due to mutation of the X chromosome. It is the reason why men are most commonly affected. A case of color vision deficiency was for a 21-year-old male who had come for a routine eye evaluation.

Colour vision was managed with X chrome contact lens. Subject was fitted with X chrome contact lens in non-dominant eye and color vision test was revaluated after adaptation of 15 min, 1 hour, and 2 hours. The improvement in color vision on Ishihara color plates was noticed on follow-up.

It was concluded that X-chrome lenses help to improve the color vision deficiency and it is one of the management for color vision deficiency. Thus, early diagnosis is indicated for timely intervention and better results, especially in children.
