Paediatric colour vision test for identifying red/green colour vision deficiencies.
CVTME Colour Vision Test
Colour Vision Testing Made Easy (CVTME) is the paediatric gold standard for identifying genetic (red/green) colour vision deficiencies in children as young as 3 years.
The test consists of one demonstration plate and 9 test plates displaying circle, star, and/or square throughout the plates and can be completed in under 60 seconds. On most plates, children will be able to see at least one symbol even if they are colour vision deficient. If they can’t identify one symbol on the first few plates, they may not understand the test.
In addition, CVTME provides a quick screening by using 4 cards that have a car, dog, boat, and house. This test can be completed in less than 30 seconds and it is 100% Ishihara compatible.
