Color Vision Exams Alexandria VA

Define Your Color Deficiency with Visual Health Doctors of Optometry

Approximately 300 million people worldwide are affected by color deficiency. Also referred to as color blindness, color deficiency is the inability to distinguish certain shades of color. Although color deficiency is commonly known as color blindness, complete color blindness is exceedingly uncommon. Individuals with this condition typically have clear eyesight, but struggle to differentiate between red, green, and blue colors.

The impact of color deficiency is subject to age and the severity of the disorder, with some people being unaware of its presence while others are significantly affected on a daily basis. Specific occupations mandate regular eye examinations to ensure that the individual’s vision is sufficient to carry out their professional responsibilities. If you require a color vision assessment in Alexandria, Virginia, Visual Health Doctors of Optometry is available to provide assistance.

Causes of Color Deficiency

Most people with a color deficiency are color blind due to genetics, but some people can become color deficient. Some diseases, like diabetes and multiple sclerosis, are known to trigger color deficiency. Other causes could be due to certain medications or the natural aging process.

Our Color Vision Exams

At Visual Health Doctors of Optometry, we offer the following color vision exams to determine if you have a color deficiency, the type, and the severity.

  • Farnsworth D-15 – This exam requires you to arrange a set of colored plates in a certain order directed by our doctor.
  • Ishihara Test for Color Vision Deficiency– Our most common test detects red/green color deficiency. The doctor will have you look at 38 plates that contain different sizes and colors of dots arranged in specific patterns. What you see will determine your color deficiency.
  • HRR Color Vision Test – This exam is used to diagnose congenital and acquired color deficiencies. Using multiple plates depicting simple shapes, our doctor can determine the type and severity of your color deficiency.

At your initial consultation, our doctor will determine which test will be best for your needs.

I went in for a contact lens exam. The optometrist was great. Very knowledgeable. Took the time to educate me on visual acuity. Was a great resource from a Physician's standpoint. I was leaving for a trip to Costa Rica the following day and was give 10 days worth of contact lens to try. Will return next week to let him know things worked out well and will try another brand of lens!- Naheed M. best-ashburn-arlington-woodbrifge-fairfax-springfield-vienna-va-optometry
Excellent and attentive! I waited for all of five minutes after showing up early to my appointment, and everyone who worked there gave very thorough and detailed explanations of what tests were happening, why, and what the costs were. I've never had such a positive experience at an eye provider. I would highly recommend them!- Melanie F. best-ashburn-arlington-woodbrifge-fairfax-springfield-vienna-va-optometry
"Excellent doctor's office. Everyone is polite and whether you're speaking with the doctor or selecting new frames, you can take your time and they will help you make the best decision for you. They do not try to sell you expensive items you don't need - which happened to me at one of the chain optometrists in the area. Definitely recommend."- Brookes C. best-ashburn-arlington-woodbrifge-fairfax-springfield-vienna-va-optometry
