Colorblindness can be a result of multiple seperate things. Most commonly it is a disbaility within the cones of your eyes, which may fire the wrong message to the brain when stimulated by color. This is why red-green colorblindess is common, the person's cones are simply malfunctioning. This can happen with any contrasting colors, colors which share similar cones but send 2 different images based on stimulis. Damage from trauma or birth defect can also impair the occipital lobes, meaning that your eyes work fine and can process color, your brain simply cant interpret the messages of color it is sent.
Some people cannot see green and red together. They can see green and red as individual colors, but if the two colors are next to each other, a red-green colorblind person will not be able to distinguish the boundary between the two colors.
