As a Colour-Blind Sight Centre we believe we carry the most comprehensive range of colour vision testing equipment in Perth. The equipment is valuable, not just to diagnose colour vision deficiency but, also to assess the level and type of colour vision deficiency a person may have. Therefore, we feel, we are better able to help assess how much it may affect an individual in their everyday lives. Some industries such as Aviation, Mining, Electrical, Rail Transport and Maritime require the specific colour vision testing we have.
Colour blindness or Colourvision deficiency (CVD), is the inability to perceive differences between some of the colours that others can distinguish. 8% of Australian males and 0.1% of females suffer from some form of colour deficiency.
In the picture opposite individuals with red, green deficiency would be more likely to see the number 2 on the plate instead of 5.
Here is a list of some of the colour vision tests we carry out:
Colorview lenses are lenses that are specifically tinted to be of assistance to people with colour vision deficiency. At our practice we allow you to try these lenses to see if they will be of use to you.
