Colour vision research lab
Our research aims to understand the impact of abnormal and altered colour vision perception.
The aims of the lab are to:
- increase primary care practice understanding and access to colour vision assessment tools
- examine the impact of colour vision defects on early educational progress
- improve the use of colour vision markers in detection and monitoring of acquired eye pathology
- investigate how colour can be used to maximise performance in displays.
Specialty techniques and equipment available in our lab include:
- Colour Assessment and Diagnosis (CAD)
- ColorDx CCT-HD (konan)
- Goodlite True Daylight Illuminator
- Optec 900
- Arrangement tests: FM100, D15, Adams, H16, desaturated D15
The colour vision clinic is located within the Deakin Collaborative Eye Care Clinic (DCECC) and is a referral clinic for patients within the community for comprehensive colour vision assessment.
The lab currently receives funding from:
2020: Defence Science and Technology, Colour vision and displays – Collaborative Agreement MYIP9004 $95.863
