Have you been tested for tritanopia? I haven't obtained a formal diagnosis yet, but I'm clearly seeing blue colors differently than normal. On a single hard-copy test plate I couldn't read the number in the dots. There are variations of 'blue color-blindness', so I don't know what I have exactly, or how much perception of the color I'm lacking, but what you describe would apply to me.
