Color Blind Test Results?
Hello doctor, like this. I just did a color blind test, and the result was DBN. What do you mean by the results of the test or DBN? Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Color blind examination can be done with multiple procedures, the most common is to use Ishihara's book. Several other types of tests, such as the Cambridge color test, the preparation test, the anomaloscope, and the Farnsworth-Munsell test can also be performed under special conditions. The results of interpretations from this examination can later be used to assess the possibility of someone's color blindness, for example due to injury, chemical exposure, optic nerve damage, brain disorders in charge of processing color information, cataracts, degenerative disorders, or also other diseases, such as diabetes, glaucoma, and multiple sclerosis. This examination is often carried out as a prerequisite for joining a particular institution, for example a company or university.
Ideally, the interpretation of the results of the color blind examination is done directly by the doctor or ophthalmologist who is examining. The term DBN that doctors use often refers to "Within Normal Limits", which means you don't experience color blindness. However, for more details, you should consult directly with the doctor who examined you.
I hope this helps.
