Housecall For Health: Color Blindness Cure?

The University of Washington may have come closer to creating a cure for color blindness.

FOX’s Colleen Cappon has the story in today’s edition of “Housecall For Health”:

Audio clip:

Researchers are one step closer to curing color blindness. A trial at the University of Washington restored full color vision in lab animals by injecting a virus into the retina that contains the missing gene responsible for the condition. An estimated 32 million Americans have some degree of color blindness. And the research team hopes the same virus injection will be effective for humans in the near future.
