Farnsworth Munsell 100 Hue Test is a color vision test that helps you detect problems related to sorting colors. The Munsell hue test was developed by Dean Farnsworth in the late 1940s. Users taking the test need to arrange the variety of colors covering the visual hues based on a specific pattern.
The Farnsworth D15 Test is similar to the hue test that drags colors into boxes in a disc arrangement. Both tests help in discovering color vision deficiency.
Color blindness is a problem targeting more than 4.01% of the population. Thus, the Farnsworth test is a unique and innovative way to test for color deficiency to improve productivity leading to a better user experience.
