to live doesn't mean you're alive.

two quick questions about the eye:

hello everyone, i've tried looking everywhere for answers to these questions and haven't found anything :(

1. How many green cones are in typical eye?
It said in my notes that there are 7 million cones in a regular eye, and somewhere online I found that green cones take up about 32%, so mathematically there should be 2,240,000 in the typical eye but I couldn't find a direct source that said green cones are x amount.

2. A red cone sensitivity at shorter than usual wavelengths is called ___________________________?
Protanomaly? I'm not 100% sure on this - there was nothing in my notes about it and this sounds like the answer given from the wikipedia article on color blindness.

Thank you for any and all help!
