Color Vision Testing Made Easy (CVTME) is the pediatric gold standard for identifying genetic (red/green) color vision deficiencies in children as young as 3. It consists of one demonstration plate and 9 test plates displaying circle, star, and/or square throughout the plates and can be completed in under 60 seconds. On most plates, children will be able to see at least one symbol even if they are color vision deficient. If they can’t identify one symbol on the first few plates, they may not understand the test.
In addition, CVTME provides a quick screening by using 4 cards that have a car, dog, boat, and house. This test can be completed in less than 30 seconds.
CVTME is brilliantly simple to take and just plain fun for children. Considered the gold standard for pediatric assessment of color vision deficiencies in over 40 countries. Additionally, the “World” US Special Olympics Team have depended on CVTME to screen athletes over the years at their events.
