Question:
Can being in the snow for three hours cause you to see colors wrong? For example white objects look yellow, blue objects look green except on the edges were you see blue?

Answer:
Yes, but your vision should return to normal in a few minutes once you are back in normal lighting. If it continues, a complete eye examination is needed.
