Hi, nherited color vision problems cannot be treated or corrected.

For the most common type of color blindness—red-green color deficiency—no treatment is needed, because you function normally. You may not be aware that you do not see colors the way they are seen by others.

Some acquired color vision problems can be treated, depending on the cause. For example, if a cataract is causing a problem with color vision, surgery to remove the cataract may restore normal color vision.
You can find ways to help make up for a color vision problem, such as:

Wearing colored contact lenses. These may help you see differences between colors. But these lenses don't provide normal color vision and can distort objects.Wearing glasses that block glare. People with severe color vision problems can see differences between colors better when there is less glare and brightness.Learning to look for cues like brightness or location, rather than colors. For example, you can learn the order of the three colored lights on a traffic signal.
Consult Opthalmologist....
