COLOUR IN HEALTH and EMPLOYMENT

Background to this symposium
Colour is used in abundance to enhance visual performance and to code information in many visually demanding occupations. As a result, screening for colour deficiency, and in particular, quantifying the severity of colour vision loss have become more important. The factors that cause variability in normal colour vision and in congenital deficiency are now better understood and advances in visual displays have enabled the development of novel colour assessment tests with high sensitivity and specificity. Such tests can be used to detect loss of chromatic sensitivity, distinguish between congenital and acquired deficiencies and to classify the type of congenital deficiency involved, including acquired loss in subjects with congenital deficiency. Whilst the new tests eliminate the use of any other cues, they can take between 10 to 15 minutes to complete and this long duration cannot always be justified.
