The EnChroma Color Blind Test is the leading online proprietary screening test developed by EnChroma to help parents learn if their child is color blind in just 2 minutes. It is available in a numbers mode for kids ages 10+ and shape mode for kids ages 5-10. Created by EnChroma, Inc. of Berkeley, CA in 2010, this color blind test is the #1 online screening tool for color vision deficiency taken by more than one million people worldwide.  

The EnChroma test uses a “hidden digit” task method combined with a computer-adaptive algorithm to measure the type and level amount of color vision deficiency (CVD) and its type.The three main types of color blindness are Deutan, Protan, and Tritan. Learn more about the different types of color blindness.

How to administer the color blind test

When testing children as young as 5, use the following steps for best results:

  1. Select a time of day when your child is alert and able to pay attention to the test for up to 5 minutes without distractions.
  2. Seat the child comfortably so they have a direct view of the computer screen (or tablet or phone). They should be looking straight at the screen and not viewing it from an angle. Off-axis viewing could affect the test results.
  3. Ensure the screen appears to have a good brightness level and is not washed out by sunlight or other room lights. A darkened room is ideal. If you have a mobile device set the screen brightness manually to medium or high brightness.
  4. If your child is not able to operate the mouse on their own, the adult should “drive” while the child’s task is to say what they see.
  5. For younger children who do not yet know their numbers, we recommend using the “symbol” testing mode, which presents one of three symbols: square, circle or triangle.
