red-green color blindness compatible vim theme

I am looking for a vim theme accessible to users with red green color blindness. In particular, the red text on a dark terminal background all but disappears. Do any of you know of a good theme? Or have resources useful for designing one?

In my .vimrc I added:

set background=dark

That helped a lot.

I am not colorblind so I don’t really know what works and what doesn’t. I use the desert color scheme which works great for me, but your best guess would be to go to and just check them all out.
