Does the Farnsworth D15 test predict the ability to name colours?
TLDR
The Farnsworth D15 test is widely used to provide advice to patients with abnormal colour vision and is often used for occupational selection when reliable recognition of surface colour codes is required, but there has been no study of whether a person who passes the D15 can reliably name surface colours.
Can color vision defective subjects who pass the farnsworth lantern test recognize surface color codes?
TLDR
This study investigated whether people with defective color vision (DCV) who pass the Farnsworth lantern test can recognize the main colors used for surface color codes, and found those who passThe Farnsworth Lantern test can recognizing the colors of a 10-color surface color code with few or no errors.
Color Vision Testing, Standards, and Visual Performance of the U.S. Military.
TLDR
CVTs are superior to paper-based PIP in diagnosing, classifying, and grading CVD and should be considered as a primary or secondary test in the U.S. Armed Forces.
Clinical colour vision tests
  • S. Dain
  • Medicine
    Clinical & experimental optometry
  • 2004
TLDR
The structure and function of the available and significant clinical colour vision tests are reviewed and recommendations are made for basic and extended test batteries, when examining of congenital and acquired colour vision deficiencies in the consulting room.
Performance of colour‐deficient people on the Holmes–Wright lantern (type A): consistency of occupational colour vision standards in aviation

  • 2008
TLDR
This study examines the consistency of the Falant pass criteria for Holmes–Wright lantern type A, an occupational colour vision test used by the UK Civil Aviation Authority and approved by Joint Aviation Requirements to select aircrew.
Assessment of inherited colour vision defects in clinical practice
  • B. Cole
  • Medicine
    Clinical & experimental optometry
  • 2007
TLDR
Tests for primary care assessment of colour vision and guidance on the advice that can be given to patients with CVD are provided.
Consistency of secondary colour vision tests in transport industries.
TLDR
There was low consistency between the colour vision tests examined and the need for standardization across the transport industries is highlighted.
Light wavelengths of LEDs to improve the color discrimination in Ishihara test and Farnsworth Panel D‐15 test for deutans
This study was performed to determine significant light wavelengths to improve color discrimination ability of subjects with deutan. We conducted both the Ishihara test and the Farnsworth Panel D-15
Occupational color vision standards: new prospects.
TLDR
The Australian and Canadian Railways have developed new lanterns to address their occupational medical requirements and the Civil Aviation Authority in the UK has adopted the Color Assessment and Diagnosis (CAD) test as the standard for assessing color vision for professional flight crews.

TLDR
It is noted that the normals who fail this lantern test appear to do so not because of poor colour discrimination but because the coloured stimuli presented by the lantern have a point brilliance close to the average chromatic threshold.

TLDR
A survey of the lantern tests that have been or are used to evaluate the color vision of people who wish to enter occupations that require the ability to recognize colored signal lights reliably indicates that some lanterns may fail a significant proportion of normals and that there is considerable variation between lanterns in the proportion of color vision defectives that will fail.
Protans and PAPI: Recognition of a two colour code by persons with defective colour vision
TLDR
It is concluded that the majority of colour vision defective observers are not able to identify a red/white signal system reliably despite the code being a simple two category code and the fact that brightness differences between the red and white signals were an available cue.
Colour Vision Deficiencies XII
A method is described which permits measurement of colour contrast sensitivity in the retinal periphery. It has been applied to patients with autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa, in which the
