This is how numbers look to a dichromate (only two photopigments) on a color vision test. *Tritan is not included because it is extremely rare.

This is how numbers look to an anomalous trichromate (three photopigments, one pigment is just a little off) on a color vision test.  The defect is not as severe compared to a dichromate.  In fact, some of the test numbers can be seen by an anomalous trichromate.
