The course will discuss recently developed 'computerized' color vision tests that are commercially available; which tests have been validated by academic institutes; how they were designed; and what their capabilities are. Cases of acquired color vision deficiencies associated with ocular diseases will be presented. How to get reimbursement for color vision testing and what CPT code to use. The course will include current and future research studies related to “computerized” color vision testing.
- The first objective will be to teach doctors and para optometric staff basic principles of color vision so they can better detect, evaluate, treat, and counsel their color deficient patients. Communicate to attendees on how to perform advanced testing to determine the type and degree of a color vision deficiency. The main course objective thou will be to introduce the advantages of testing color vision using some of the new and innovative “computerized” color vision tests on the market. Clearly explain the design and capabilities of several computerized color vision tests: the Cambridge Colour Vision Test by Cambridge Research Systems, Waggoner Computerized Color Vision Test by Dr. Terrace L. Waggoner, Cone Contrast Test by Jeffery Rabin, and the Colour Assessment and Diagnosis Test by Dr. John Barbur.
