I was wondering if there is any linkage between Asperger's/High Functioning Autism and Colorblindness. Approximately 8 percent of men and 0.5 percent of women with Northern European ancestry have color blindness. Here is an on-line tests for colorblindness. Color Blindness Test

Generally there are 6 types of color blindness. These are:

Protanomaly: In males with protanomaly, the red cone photopigment is abnormal. Red, orange, and yellow appear greener and colors are not as bright. This condition is mild and doesn’t usually interfere with daily living. Protanomaly is an X-linked disorder estimated to affect 1 percent of males.

Protanopia: In males with protanopia, there are no working red cone cells. Red appears as black. Certain shades of orange, yellow, and green all appear as yellow. Protanopia is an X-linked disorder that is estimated to affect 1 percent of males.

Deuteranomaly: In males with deuteranomaly, the green cone photopigment is abnormal. Yellow and green appear redder and it is difficult to tell violet from blue. This condition is mild and doesn’t interfere with daily living.

Deuteranomaly is the most common form of color blindness and is an X-linked disorder affecting 5 percent of males.

Deuteranopia: In males with deuteranopia, there are no working green cone cells. They tend to see reds as brownish-yellow and greens as beige. Deuteranopia is an X-linked disorder that affects about 1 percent of males.

Tritanomaly: People with tritanomaly have functionally limited blue cone cells. Blue appears greener and it can be difficult to tell yellow and red from pink. Tritanomaly is extremely rare. It is an autosomal dominant disorder affecting males and females equally.

Tritanopia: People with tritanopia, also known as blue-yellow color blindness, lack blue cone cells. Blue appears green and yellow appears violet or light grey. Tritanopia is an extremely rare autosomal recessive disorder affecting males and females equally.

Tritanopes/tritanomalous are very rare. One in 30,000 to 50,000 people.

Please leave a comment on your type of color blindness.

I have some colorblindness but I was born with a rare low vision disorder that includes that. I highly doubt there's a link between my Aspergers & my vision disorder.

Not as far as I'm aware. I really hope I don't find that I am and never realised.
