If the moderators will allow some latitude that vision is gun related.....

11 of 12 "color blind" are male, inherited it from mom's side of the gene pool, have a green not red problem, and aren't "blind", just a little weak.

Failing the dot test and Farnsworth lantern test kept me from a Coast Guard or Naval Commission. But I was able to pass the CTT test and the Air Force allowed me to fly high performance jets... go figure...

If you are bordeline weak, the dot test can depend on type of ambient lighting. Photographers, fashion designers, makeup artists, etc.... all seem to know that incandescent, fluorescent, mercury bulbs, and natural sunlight bring out color differently, but not every doctor seems to know that office lighting matters. Unless you are hunting deer with lots of dots on them inside an office you may not really have a problem.
