What is the Ishihara test?


This test is largely used on children to identify colour blindness. The optician will show you a number of plates which are printed with dots of different colours, brightness, density and sizes, arranged so that the dots of similar colour form a figure (e.g. a number) among a background of differently-coloured dots.
