A good overview of the nature of light -- especially visible light -- and of color vision. http://www.handprint.com/HP/WCL/color1.html. From Bruce MacEvoy.
Ishihara Test for colorblindess. The following page offers the standard tests for color blindness, plus some information. Note that the tests cannot be considered medically rigorous, since they depend on the color presentations of your monitor. http://www.toledo-bend.com/colorblind/Ishihara.asp. The page is part of a larger site, Colors for the color blind, by Frank Dutton; see the menu just below the top banner.
Colorblindness Test for Children. It is intended for little children too young to deal with the numbers found on the usual tests. http://freepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~hellmers/test/. New March 13, 2013
M Okabe & K Ito have proposed that color figures be "enhanced" to make them more readable by colorblind people. For example, many molecular and cell biology results are shown in red and green -- a color combination that a few percent of males cannot distinguish. The proposal is to use magenta instead of red; the magenta contains enough blue to allow the color to be distinguished from the green by many colorblind people. For more on this "accessibility" issue, see http://jfly.iam.u-tokyo.ac.jp/html/color_blind/.
An interesting development... Scientists have reported "curing" colorblindness in monkeys. The monkeys have partial color vision, similar to common kinds of colorblindness in humans. Using gene therapy, the scientists added the information to make a new type of color receptor -- new, that is, for these monkeys. Interestingly, the monkeys seem to make good use of the new receptor. One aspect of this is that the brain was able to make use of the new information. A good news story: Gene therapy cures colour-blind monkeys; September 16, 2009: http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn17799-gene-therapy-cures-colourblind-monkeys.html. It links to the article published in Nature.
