Munsell Color Vision Testing

The Simple And Reliable Way To Assess Color Vision Capabilities

Farnsworth-Munsell 100 Hue Test

Farnsworth-Munsell 100 Hue Test - A simple, effective method for determining color vision abnormalities and testing color discrimination. Provides reliable data which can be applied to many psychological and industrial color vision problems. The set consists of four trays containing a total of 85 removable color reference caps that have incremental hue variation on one side and are numbered on the reverse side.

Color vision anomalies and color aptitude are detected by a subject's ability to place the color caps in hue order. The four trays are boxed in a sturdy carrying case. Used by government and industry for over 50 years.

To maintain the reliability of the test results for the Farnsworth-Munsell 100 Hue Test, it is recommended that the color reference caps be replaced periodically.

Farnsworth D-15 Dichotomous Hue Test

Farnsworth D-15

Farnsworth D-15 Dichotomous Hue Test - This test is a modification of the Farnsworth-Munsell 100 Hue Test. It is intended for screening purposes rather than for the in-depth study of a color vision defect. It provides a benchmark to indicate a subject's ease or difficulty in distinguishing color differences in certain tasks.

The set is made up of 15 color reference caps with Munsell notations, plus a neutral (N 5) cap. The caps are arranged in order, starting with a "pilot" cap. This test can usually be administered in under five minutes. When a more detailed study of a subject's color vision or color discrimination ability is required, the Farnsworth-Munsell 100 Hue Test is recommended.
