Chromatopsia is sometimes known as chromatic
Chromatopsia is a term used to refer to abnormal colour
vision in which objects appear to be abnormally coloured (some definitions
say "falsely coloured") or tinged with a colour not perceived
by most people, i.e. those unaffected by the same form of chromatopsia.
Some sources describe chromatopsia as a form of colour
Depending on the cause and circumstances, objects can take on a tinge/hue
of a particular colour such as as reddish hue, green, yellow/green, or
a yellow-ish tinge.
For example, xanthopsia
(yellow vision) is a form of chromatopsia in which all
objects in the person's field of view appear to have a yellow-ish tinge.
