    Abstract

    Lakowski, R. (1969).Brit. J. industr. Med.,26, 173-189. Theory and practice of colour vision testing: A review Part I. It is the concern of this paper to examine not only the effectiveness of tests for detecting colour confusion but also their usefulness in assessing colour vision generally. In part 1, problems of administration and age and the question of the basic elements of such tests are discussed. The existing theory of colour vision and colour defect is outlined and the principle of objective colour specification, which is believed to be valuable for understanding these tests, is introduced.
