Ishihara Electronic Color Blindness Test: An Evaluation Study
Ophthalmology Research: An International Journal,
Purpose: Evaluation of computer based color deficiency test.
Materials and Methods: Two hundred and sixty seven volunteers have been checked using both traditional Ishihara plates and a computer diagnosis program using LCD monitors.
Results: The prevalence of red green color vision deficiency (RG-CVD) was 8.75% of male participants, no female participants were diagnosed, both in the paper based test, and in the computer based test. Computer based test gave 100% sensitivity and 98.78% specificity.
Conclusion: Presenting the computer based color deficiency test software on LCD screen can be used for screening of color vision deficiency with nearly similar sensitivity and specificity to the Ishihara test with the advantage reducing the cost through decreasing required resources over time, and decreasing the time to analyze the results.
