This question has been asked and answered here a number of times as well. RES are not color blind--they see the range of colors we do. They have keen eyesight, especially at distances. Up close they tend to be slightly nearsighted and rely more on sense of smell for finding food. They lack depth perception. They have no special ability to see in the dark.
