  • No blue-yellow color vision impairment after acute ethanol ingestion. [Journal Article]
    Alcohol 2019; 76:59-63Vogelsang P, Weinmann W, Pfäffli M
  • Several studies showed that chronic ethanol exposure can cause color vision deficiencies. There has been no agreement about the axis of color defects due to alcohol misuse since changes in the red-green and the blue-yellow axis have been described in literature. The acute influence of alcohol on the blue-yellow color vision has not been studied as well. The aim of this study was to determine the …
  • Review of the main colour vision clinical assessment tests. [Review]
    Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol 2019; 94(1):25-32Fanlo Zarazaga A, Gutiérrez Vásquez J, Pueyo Royo V
  • CONCLUSIONS: The Anomaloscope is the "gold standard" in terms of colour vision testing, despite its incompatibility with daily clinical practice. It is fairly complex to use, difficult to understand for children, and its practice requires having the time available. Nevertheless, it is possible to reach an accurate approximation through the combination of some of the tests listed in this article. The above mentioned tests are a good alternative to determine the presence of dyschromatopsia in settings closer to daily clinical practice or in less controlled settings than a clinical study. The major drawback among the wide range of tests available for the study of colour vision is the difficulty to compare results between tests, since units of the reported data are usually different, and experience is required for its correct interpretation. Currently, there is no consensus on which colour test is the most complete. It is, therefore, advisable to use at least 2 tests in order to ensure diagnoses, and have more extensive information about the visual perception of patients.
  • Color Vision Tests in Pilots' Medical Assessments. [Journal Article]
    Aerosp Med Hum Perform 2018; 89(8):737-743Marechal M, Delbarre M, … Froussart-Maille F
  • CONCLUSIONS: The discrepancy in results confirms that current color vision test protocols need to be reassessed. The CAD test could be an interesting alternative to the series of tests used to assess flight crew, but it seems more selective than current tests.Marechal M, Delbarre M, Tesson J, Lacambre C, Lefebvre H, Froussart-Maille F. Color vision tests in pilots' medical assessments. Aerosp Med Hum Perform. 2018; 89(8):737-743.
  • A Performance Comparison of Color Vision Tests for Military Screening. [Clinical Trial]
    Aerosp Med Hum Perform 2016; 87(4):382-7Walsh DV, Robinson J, … Temme LA
  • CONCLUSIONS: The current U.S. Army CV screening tests demonstrated good sensitivity and specificity, as did the automated tests. In addition, some current PIP tests (Dvorine, PIPC), and the CCT performed no worse statistically than the anomaloscope with regard to sensitivity/specificity. The CCT letter presentation is randomized and results would not be confounded by potential memorization, or fading, of book plates.
