    A manual on the field of color vision from the occupational and environmental medicine point of view.

    This working manual, with over 24 color photos and illustrations, describes the current tests and procedures for screening and diagnostic evaluation of employees. The importance of color vision testing is growing rapidly and workers in many fields are being called on to judge the proper color for quality control, safety systems, identification of hazardous wastes, and health and system monitoring. Testing is also becoming more complex. Many states now require color testing for distinction of yellow versus orange as well as red versus green by commercial vehicle operators to insure public safety.

    Examiners must be aware of the full range of color vision testing and have the background to interpret the results. This manual uses clear description and many color illustrations to help the non-specialist understand the processes of color vision, the range of color vision anomalies, and the processes of testing and diagnosis.
