Colour Vision Assessment

Some people have defective colour vision. This may be inherited (and present at birth) or acquired later in life as a result of a disease of the eye. About one incolour_blindness12 men (8%) and one in 200 women (0.5%) have defective colour vision. Very few of these people are totally colour blind: most have a reduced ability to recognise or discriminate colours and see colours differently from those who have normal colour vision.

The ACO runs a specialised clinic for the assessment of colour vision. We have a wide range of tests to identify and diagnose congenital and acquired colour vision defects.  We also determine the extent or severity of the colour vision defect and whether people with colour vision defects meet the colour vision standards for occupations.

This is useful for people in occupations such as printing, paint and the textile industries.
