PURPOSE: To determine the predictive power of commonly used tests for abnormal colour vision to identify patients who can or cannot name surface colours without error. METHODS: The colour vision of 99 subjects with colour vision deficiency (CVD) was assessed using the Ishihara, the Richmond HRR (2002), the Farnsworth D15, the Medmont C100 and the Nagel anomaloscope. They named 10 surface colours (red, orange, brown, yellow, green, blue, purple, white, grey and black), which were presented in two shapes (lines and dots) and three sizes. The surface colours were also named by an age-matched group of 20 subjects with normal colour vision. The performance of the clinical tests to predict the CVD..
