Can you LOSE your color vision?

Over the past week, I have had to separate occasions where I have described colors that were not the accurate color. I am a bit concerned. Did anyone who had Netscape 4.6 see the green center at the one perspective website as BLACK? I decided that the center shape was the right one to click on, and on the next page, it did look very very dark green. Is this possible? I have never had this sort of color discrimination problem before.

The other incident happened when I was describing the color of a monarch chrysalis changing from green to clear. I thought it looked whitish blue, but a friend said it should be a robin's egg blue.

Has anyone heard of going colorblind as an adult? I didn't think that could happen. In the past my color recognition and description has been excellent, so I know this is not a problem I never noticed before.

Thanks in advance,
