Colour vision – part 2

Date: Thu 01/11/2018 - Sat 31/10/2020

Provider: Specsavers

Optometrist Credits: 0.50 General Credits

Event Type(s): Online


Optometrists can sometimes be so intent on measuring one particular aspect of the visual system (i.e. visual acuity) that they neglect to measure other important attributes such as field of vision, stereopsis and colour vision.

Colour perception is key to all aspects of daily living. This CPD course explores what colour actually is and the way we perceive it. It discusses the correct illumination for colour vision tests, which tests to perform and how to perform them, and their impact for occupational needs.

The course also includes details on how to deal with reduced colour vision, how it can be detected and how common the defect is.
