Interesting test. I came out better than I expected, considering I have some slight color-blindness and, well, old guy is old. :D

I love these tests but a bad monitor will hurt your performance! :(

Good post. I didnt get a score but got a perfect so I guess thats a zero. Anyway. Good post. I ought to add this link to the colour part of my technical tut thingy as it has a similar test or two and some mention of the eye gamut.

I got an 11 which I thought was pretty good - I'm really impressed by your score of 0 Redrobes! Thanks for the link ravells.

I got an 8, not bad for an old fart.

As an eye doctor I can tell you that this type of test is normally pretty accurate, but it could vary a lot depending on your monitor. Usually it is administered using actual color chips and must be done under a special "daylight" light source. 3% of men have some degree of genetic color deficiency, only 1 in 3,000 women are affected. Age, cataracts, macular degeneration, and other eye diseases can cause acquired color vision loss later in life. Any change in color perception should be evaluated by an eye doctor.

Wearing anaglyph glasses (the red/blue kind for stereo viewing) can also apparently mess with it. I tried to take the test at work, but the aftereffects of using the glasses made it very difficult. I've scored 0 on it before, but I had an 18 this time. Maybe I should try it with one eye closed.

Put me down for the zero club too. :)

I'm surprised actually. When I was 18 I was jumped by a guy after a night out and he managed to land a kick right in my eye and ever since then that eye has been worse and colours are subtly different when viewed individually.

Wow, I think I'm the worst so far: 39. :D

4 for me. It's uncomfortable to look at to long though.

8 here, they should put a timer too :P it took me less than 2 min.... i bet with more time you could get higher scores

Interesting test. I got a 3 and considered it a good score since my right eye sees everything blurred.

This made my eyes hurt, but my results were "perfect" at 0.

I can't even remotely complain.

If my eyes were hurting, I'd complain!

Oh, and by the way, my eyes are hurting. ow…

Interesting test... not sure how I feel about the results.

There are a lot of uncontrolled variables. The time you take during the test being the most glaring, but also if you've recently balanced your screen colours and so forth and indeed probably the quality of your screen overall. For a quick and dirty test though it seems good enough.

Score of zero. "Perfect color acuity". Nice. I've been wanting to do one of these, just to see :)

I was happy with an 18! I have a mild color blindness sadly, but I tried really hard and almost hurt my head. Fun test, anymore of this stuff floating around?

Hurt my eyes and only scored an 18! Very fun test, im curious to see if I can do any better on my monitor at home tho.

I scored a 4. I was very surprised, I thought I would have scored MUCH worse!!!

I liked this test. Scored a 3, but could have done better I guess, too bad my monitor sucks.

You can have the greatest monitor on earth, but it doesn't matter if it's not profiled!
