Slide2 l.jpg

COLOR-BLINDNESS

absolutely disqualifies a personfor some vocations such

as those connected with the railroads, the navy,

color-photography

or painting.


Slide3 l.jpg

Except in cases of an accident, color-blindness

dates from birth

and is due to a defect

in the retina of the eye

which cannot be remedied.


Slide4 l.jpg

Color-blindness may be divided into two general classes

red-blindness and green-blindness

depending on which color

is absent in the color sense.

Sometimes both these colors are absent.


Slide5 l.jpg

A third and rare form

is the violet-blind.

Of the human race

about 4% of males and

about one-fourth of 1% of females

are said to be blind to

red, or green, or to both.


Slide6 l.jpg

Attention was brought

forcibly to the

danger of color-blindness

among railway employees

by a serious accident

in Sweden in 1875.


Directions l.jpg
DIRECTIONS

A Westcott slide

will now be used

for testing whether

you are color-blind or not.


Slide8 l.jpg

and a piece of paper.

Once your instructor

begins to give directions,

NO questions or discussion

will be allowed

until the test is finished.

There is to be NO talking from now on.


Test a l.jpg
TEST A

On the paper write

the number of the

sample color(s)

that you think

are similar to

(Green) Color A.


Slide10 l.jpg

You will find very few,

if any samples

exactly like Color A.

You are to include in this list

all greens whether tending

toward the yellow,

or toward the blue.


Slide11 l.jpg

There are many

samples of color

on the slide

which should not be included

in any of the lists asked for.


Slide12 l.jpg

Your instructor

will wait

until he senses

all are finished.

whether to red or green,

you will include with the greens one or more grays, browns or roses,

and it is not uncommon for you

to include as many as
