Are you sure you are not colorblind?

Color blindness also known as color vision deficiency, is the decreased ability to see color or differences in color. 1 in 200 women and 1 in 12 men are Colorblind.


People with color vision deficiency might see some colors as other colors, for example, If a normal person sees a red object, the person with color blindness may see it with another color, perhaps brown, black, dark green, or even blue or yellow! Can you believe that?

Color blindness is mostly an inherited condition. There are several different types of color blindness, because of genetic variation.

Many people think anyone labeled as “colorblind” only sees black and white – like watching a black-and-white movie or television. This is a big misconception and not true. It is extremely rare to be totally color blind (Monochromasy – complete absence of any color sensation).

It should be obvious there are several different kinds and degrees of color vision deficiencies.

Protanomalous or deuteranomalous individuals can usually pass as normal observers in everyday activities. They may make occasional errors in color names or may encounter difficulties in discriminating small differences in colors, but usually, they do not perform very differently from people with ordinary vision except on color vision tests.

The protanope and deuteranope, on the other hand, can be severely color-deficient. The real problem, as a protanope or deuteranope may see it, is there are far too many hue names (color names) used by most people without any obvious basis for using one instead of another.

Why call something “orange” when it doesn’t look different in any way from something else called green, tan, beige, or any of several other color names?

Who should take a color-blind test?

8% of the men and 0.5% of the women of the world are born colorblind. That’s as high as one out of twelve men and one out of two hundred women.

A color-blind test should be given to anyone;

Maybe you think that you have a normal vision, but this is how many colorblind people thought at first before they found out the truth after passing a colorblind test.

Pass a colorblind test online

In this age of technology, you can find an online colorblind test to check your vision without going out of the house or visiting an eye doctor and get your results in a few minutes.

Many of those online tests are FREE, but I don't believe in the quality of the free offers. If you feel the same way and looking for an accurate online colorblind test you are in the right place.

The best online colorblind test

The most widely used screening test for color blindness is the Ishihara Color Vision Test. The seemingly random colored dots are arranged in such a fashion that a person with normal color vision will see a single-digit or two-digit number within the array of dots.

However a colorblind person will either be unable to see a number or will see a different number than the one seen by a person with normal color vision.

The test is named after Japanese ophthalmologist Shinobu Ishihara (1879-1963), who devised the procedure and first published a description of it in 1917. THIS IS WAY TOO OLD TEST FOR 2020!

Many colorblind tests can be found online. Most of these are variations of the Ishihara screening test and are presented in varying degrees of quality, so you can guess how much they are accrued...

CONCLUSION: Now is the best part!

Color vision tests that consist of different colored circular dots are all called pseudo-isochromatic color vision tests. The Ishihara, Divorine, and this online Waggoner PIPHRR color vision test are all pseudo isochromatic color vision tests. This test is not the Ishihara but it is a pseudoisochromatic color vision test. The Waggoner PIPHRR computerized test is considered Ishihara compatible.

What organizations are currently using the online Waggoner PIPHRR color vision test?

  •  U.S. Navy

  •  U.S. Army

  •  Kaiser Permanente

  •  Core Medstaff

  • And many hospitals in the U.S.

So if you want to get 100% accurate results without spending your money on doctors' appointments (which start from $50 to $100) depending on the hospital, go ahead and take this test online. Many doctors and hospitals in the U.S. use this test for color vision checks.
