I personally have a mild colorblindness issue, and certainly too much or too little contrast can cause readability issues.  You have to also keep in mind that there are a wide variety of displays, lighting conditions, user settings, etc., so you will never be perfect for 100% of viewers.  Even so, I like to use a tool that measures color and brightness differential.  It's been around for years, so it's not the slickest, but it works.
