That is the most commen type of color blindness.

The color cells in the eye are of two types:
Red/Green and Yellow/Blue.

Color blindness is a deficiency (or absence) of either or both sets of these cells to correctly respond to colors. It does, in fact come in degrees, and these are measureable. Total color blindness is only a small subset of those considered color-blind.

The measurement consists of an image made up of colored circles of varying shades of either red/green or Blue/Yellow. The are so arranged that a number may be seen if the colors are distinguishable, and a different number is seen if they are not. This operates by taking advantage of color vision dominating shaded vision. If the colors are not distinguishable, then the number perceived is made up of various shades of gray (or green or red).

Color-blindness is not an obstacle to driving (for example) so long as the driver-to-be can either (1) perceive the color differences of red and green lights, or
(2) remembers that red is always the top and green the bottom.
