A type of color blindness is named after which physicist?
I am guessing the answer you are looking for is the British physicist John Dalton, who suffered from a form of color blindness himself. Color blindness is sometimes called "Daltonism" in his honor since he was one of the first scientists to formally study this group of pathologies.
I would say that perhaps Dalton is more widely recognized for his pioneering studies in modern atomic theory, so that may be why many people don't immediately associate "Daltonism" with him.
