Hi, I'm a colorblind guardian (Please read)

Hi, I'm colorblind. I struggle to see certain shades of red, green, and sometimes purple. For those that don't understand what this may be like, just imagine everything is either very faded or blends in to backgrounds. God forbid its a bright map; UI and reticles are entirely invisible. Destiny currently has some colorblind settings, but I find it to be basically useless with the exception of the option to change the color of my radar. On PC, players have the option of changing reticle colors that console players don't have. I'm a console player. I would like this feature. But it wouldn't solve the problem entirely... A lot of sights on weapons are... you guessed it. RED. It's super difficult for me to use any gun that has red sights (Most handcannons and other weapons). For example I literally can not use Lumina because of its sights. Could we perhaps have the option to fine tune the color of sights as well? I would like to change my sights and other UI elements to a bright, neon, banana yellow or a bright blue as I can see those very easily. Thank you. Edit: thanks fellow Guardians. The support is appreciated. Edit #2: Thanks again guys. Heres more clarification on what color blindness is like for me. Idk, you might find it interesting. You know how when you start a game for the first time it asks you to adjust the brightness by making the picture just barely visible? I'll have it just a few notches higher than most people because darker colors blend in sooner for me. This is also applicable to the red holo sights that most guns share. If the backdrop is on the brighter side, I'll have trouble seeing it because it's some weird see-through red. It's the contrast between the reticle and what's around it that makes it hard to see. The cones in my eyes aren't as sensitive to the colors red and green like people without the condition. Honestly if it were just solid red and not holo-see-through red id probably be fine. BUT I can still see red and green. My shader is actually the New Monarchy red/gold shader. Color blindness is not a literal term (except in extreme cases). It moreso describes the inability to differentiate SHADES of colors. All reds within a given range will look the same to me. Whereas other people will slowly see the individual changes from dark red to light red. Same with greens. I can still see red, I just can't see [i]all[/i] the reds. They're all the same except the darkest shades which may blend in with black entirely.

    While I want to upvote I can't. Games dow what they can to accommodate various handicaps which is way more than most employers are obligated to. Before you buy a product maybe you should play the free version of it to make sure it fits your handicap. This isn't me being an elitist either. My younger sister is 46 and operates on a 12 year old level. I don't expect games like this to cater to her handicap because either my father or myself couldn't properly investigate the requirements. Not all games can be created equally for all gamers just like not all jobs can be created equally. edit: While I'm not color blind, my vision is far from perfect requiring me to where prescription glasses in order to be able to see with 20/20 vision. I did a quick google search earlier and what I linked in another reply didn't really fit all people's ability to implement. I did another google search because it dawned on me that my new eye doctor did a color blind test so he knew if he was going to need to do a color blind correction in my prescription and found [url=https://pilestonecolorblindexperts.com/]these[/url]. I read some reviews on [url=https://www.amazon.com/Pilestone-TP-012-Corrective-Red-Green-Blindness/dp/B072JLXT9D?ref_=ast_bbp_dp#customerReviews]Amazon[/url] and they seem to work pretty well. Since this seems to be a correctable condition, no I don't think a game developer needs to invest extra time and resources into adding a feature to a videogame for a condition that can be corrected.
