Color Vision Test Answers

Approximately 8% of males and less than 1% of females are born with an inherited type of color blindness, known as "red - green" color blindness. In this disorder, there may be confusion in distinguishing certain hues from one another. For example, certain reds, browns, olives and golds may be confused. However, pure red would be easily distinguished from pure green, in this particular type of color blindness.

There are many varieties and degrees of color blindness, and this color vision test only pertains to the most common type, the inherited red - green type of color blindness. This test may not be accurate due to the wide variety in the ways colors are displayed on different monitors and with different internet browsers. Certainly, it would be doubtful that a printer would display the colors correctly, so it is not recommended to print the test to take it. An individual's eye care provider can test color vision most accurately.

Note: Missing a few of the numbers may be normal, but missing the majority of the numbers may indicate a color vision abnormality. Again, this test is most specific for the commonly inherited red-green type of color blindness.
