Abstract

The amount of color induced into test fields of Illuminant A or Illuminant C by surrounding annuli of colored light was measured for a deuteranopic observer. The method of measurement utilized a comparison of the appearance of the test field presented to one eye with an actual field of colored light presented to the other eye. Nine different inducing colors were used with each test field. Of these nine, only two blue inducing colors produced a change of the color appearance of Illuminant C; blue, green, and purple inducing colors were effective with Illuminant A. The results are discussed in relation to comparable data for subjects with normal color vision and to theories of color deficiency.
