Posted by: Eyes On Success Radio Show and Podcast

Dates: 6/6/2018 - 6/6/2019

Color-blindness affects about 1 in 12 men but only 1 in 250 women. For most people this isn’t a problem. But what if your profession requires a good color sense? Hosts Nancy and Peter Torpey talk with Toby Derrig, a color-blind visual effects artist, about how he compensates for this deficiency in his daily life and to perform his job.
