Do You Have a Color Vision Deficiency?


Want to find out if you have any deficiencies in your color vision? Try the the Online Color Challenge by Pantone and X-Rite. It tests your ability to discriminate among hues by making you put 88 color tiles in order along four rows.

Any mis-placement reveals a defect in your color vision. Or a lousy uncalibrated monitor. Or a defect in your ambient lighting. Or some Doritos residue on your screen. Still, it only takes a few minutes and it's fun.

See if you can beat my score.*

If you want to test your vision even further, head over to where you can take several exams including the Ishihara 38 Plates Test, the F-M 100 Hue Test, the RGB Anomaloscope, the Kobiyashi Maru, and Hogwarts O.W.L. exams.**

*Score achived with a lousy uncalibrated monitor, lit by late afternoon sunlight, and smeared with Doritos residue.

**Some of these tests cannot be passed without cheating.
