LisaYes, it is possible for a toddler to be color blind. And color blindness is more common in boys but rare in girls. They can be inherited from parents. If you or your families have color blindness, your son is likely to get color blindness since he has problems in telling colors. So, you'd better take him to eye doctor for an eye examination to make sure if he suffers color blindness.08/13/2012
