Summary: 
Protanopes and deuteranopes are difficult to distinguish some color pairs. In this letter, a new lightness modification method which considers the Craik-O'Brien effect is proposed. The lightness modification is performed at parts which are difficult to distinguish in the protanopia or deuteranopia. Experiments show the validity of the proposed method.
