How Good is Your Color Vision?…  The Farnsworth Color Vision Test Will Tell

Accurate color vision is essential to all aspects of color development and effective color communication whether you’re designing, inspecting or formulating in any industry.  The Farnsworth Color Vision Test (also known as the Farnsworth-Munsell 100 Hue Test) uncovers color blindness and other color vision anomalies.

Color Blind People Can Still See Color… the Farnsworth Color Vision Test Evaluates the Extent

The Farnsworth color blindness test has been used to evaluate color vision for more than 50 years.  It evaluates the extent to which your color vision can discern between specific colors and slight hue variations within a given color.  The complete Farnsworth Color Vision Test indicates your color acuity across the visible spectrum of color—essential for anyone evaluating or communicating color.

Quick Color Blindness Screening

Perhaps you’re not completely color blind (everything appears black, white and shades of gray)—a rare form of color blindness.  Color blindness often involves deficiencies in your ability to discern between certain colors such as red-green or blue-yellow.   Sorry guys… color blindness is more prevalent among males—especially red-green color vision deficiency, which affects 7-10% of males worldwide.

An abridged version of the Farnsworth Color Vision Test—the Farnsworth Munsell Dichotomous D-15 color vision test—offers a quick screening option to detect red-green or blue-yellow color vision deficiencies.
