No. There is nothing that can be done to affect this issue at all.

As you might already know, the most common form or color blindness in the population consists of a red/green deficiency. This occurs in about 8% of males.

Do not waste time on colored overlays or any other "therapy"....they are all scams.

Dr. Rick :

We have been experiencing problems with the chat system for the last few days. Our engineers are working on it. However, I'll switch over to the Q&A system. This system works a lot like 'text messaging' but an email is sent to each of us anytime something is posted to this thread. We can continue to work on your question there..... :)
