If You Can’t Read 1-2 Slide Tests, Does It Mean That It Is A Failure?
Hello, I want to ask. In the Isihara or Color Blind Test, there are a number of slides or numbers, so if there are one / two slides or numbers that cannot be read, does that mean that it is color blind and failed to pass the color blind test? That is all and thank you
Hello Permadi, thank you for asking on HealthReplies.com.
Color blindness test using the Isihara test method is one of several available methods that can be used to determine whether a person is color blind or not. Please note that color blindness does not require symptoms that all colors cannot be seen or all objects only appear as black or white. In the medical world, color blindness can be divided into several types depending on what color is disturbed. Therefore, if one of the slides shown in the Isihara test cannot be answered, then it is very likely that the person undergoing the test will experience color blindness and yes, it will most likely be declared not to pass the color blind test.
To ensure this, then the person should be further examined by an ophthalmologist for further examination to ascertain whether there is indeed a certain color blindness and what causes the occurrence of color blindness because there are several conditions that can cause a state of color blindness such as the presence of offspring in families who experience color blindness, damage to the membranes in the eye (retina), high eye pressure, and several other conditions.
Regarding the treatment itself, this depends on the cause, if it is caused by hereditary factors, then this condition cannot be cured, but if it is caused by other diseases of the eye, if the eye disease is treated it will generally lead to improvement in color vision.
