Abstract : The interpretation of color vision tests is straightforward. The real skill that must be developed is knowing what test or tests to perform. This paper teaches how to perform and interpret the commonly used tests of color vision. When faced with a possible color vision defect, the first question you should ask is: 'Is this most likely a congenital anomaly or an acquired dyschromatopsia' The second question to ask is: 'How precisely do I need to define the defect' Keywords: Anomaloscopes, Hue tests.
