Colour Blind Eye Exam
Of all the problems that can develop when it comes to vision, colour blindness is perhaps the most publicly misunderstood. It isn’t a simple case of colours getting mixed up, and it isn’t always true that people are born with it. Sometimes colour blindness can be a slight, barely perceptible problem, and it can also be something that is acquired through poor health or even certain side effects from medication.Find Out More
Do You Need a Colour Blind Exam?
If you are experiencing changes in colour perception, we urge you to come in for a colour eye exam. As vision and optometry providers in Melbourne, we are passionate about understanding your eye health and how your lifestyle, personal habits and underlying health conditions have an effect on your colour perception. Our tests are designed to delve deep into the reasons for colour blindness and how you can reduce its impact on your life or those of your loved ones. Whether you have only just begun to notice the problem or you have suffered from defective colour perception all your life, we can help!
Colour Blind Eye Exam Benefits:
Improved sensory information
Improved perception and awareness
Better ability to distinguish and recognise objects
Improved reactions and performance
Quantum Photo-Somatics is a dynamic process, activating the system to begin rearranging and realigning itself to a state of ease. On average, follow-up consultations resulting in a change of prescription occur on a 6-monthly basis. In most cases this is a decrease of prescription, allowing the system to continue moving forward. Where a prescription has increased, it is an indicator that more support is required at that moment, and will likely come down when conditions change.
However, if your new lenses aren’t delivering the comfort or improvement you expected within 100 days, we’re here for you. We’ll re-evaluate your eyes and make any adjustments that are required.
In the majority of cases, we find that a brief 15-30 minute consult suffices to determine the issue, and is usually a matter of further integration, or a slight adjustment to the prescription. These consultations are available free of charge within the 100 day warranty period.
- Progress and Support: In some cases, changes occuring as a result of the process may temporarily create some discomfort. Different stages of progress may require varying levels of support in order to reach the desired outcome.
- Consultation Fees: A consultation fee will be charged for consultations extending to an hour or more, given the extensive work involved.
- Discounted Lenses: If the outcome of your consultation is a significant decrease of prescription, new lenses will be prescribed at a 30% discount. Lens remakes under warranty are not honored for obvious improvements.
- Warranty Lens Remakes: If there’s another significant shift within the next 100 days, lens remakes we will remake your lenses free of charge.
As the outcomes of this work are highly individual, the application of this policy will have variability depending on the case, and is continually being adapted as the modality itself evolves.

Colour Blindness vs Colour Deficiency
You may have heard that everyone sees colour differently. While this is true, if you notice changes in your vision, it’s important to talk to a professional. While changes to your colour perception may be benign, it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
Alternatively, if you’re looking for a colour-blind test, then you may be wondering if you have a divergent perception of colour. Between 5-8% of people experience colour blindness, so it’s perfectly normal – but still a good idea to get tested.
Rather, colour blindness to its fullest extent (i.e., seeing in grey hues) is very rare. Colour perception is something deeply individual, so it’s essential to find an optometrist that treats it as such.
There’s no such thing as a standard colour deficiency test, as it will depend on the optometrist’s equipment and the client, etc. However, some of the things you might expect from the test may be:
- perform tasks like identifying coloured shapes
- sorting colours, by noticing slight variations
- adjusting colour gradients.

Colour Blind Test: Improving Your Vision Intelligently
Whilst there have been many technological breakthroughs and new research into how vision works, there are many optometrists that still use outdated methods to improve eyesight. Often, they don’t even bother improving it and seek merely to maintain what is there. We like to do things differently and have put together a cutting-edge service that looks at all aspects to do with vision and its treatment.
When you come in for a colour blind test, we will assess every aspect of your vision. Our eye exam in Melbourne involve assessments that cover:
- Neurological behaviour – we can make deductions about the physiological habits of your vision through something called Kinesiology, a study of the muscles around your eye.
- Functional optometry – this takes a wide look at your health in general, especially useful if you have only started recently noticing changes in colour perception.
- Optical coherence tomography – where we can take a 3D image of your eye to make a complete model of what is going on.
- Light therapy – where we use different types of light and coloured filters to help relax and invigorate your vision so that we can begin to re-train some of the processes that go into observing colour.

We take a unique approach to vision and eye health by holistically and dynamically assessing vision, mind and body as a complete unit, working on conscious and subconscious levels.
Our unique methodology, Quantum (Energy) Photo (Light) Somatics (Body Movement) (QPS) has been developed by Dr Michael Christian. QPS supports Optometry and is an endorsed and accredited field with the IICT (International Institute of Complementary Therapies) myiict.com.
It engages a real time integrative feedback system of many factors, making adjustments, counter checks and further adjustments through the process.
Light uniquely and appropriately refracted through lens and prism combinations support and change factors such as breath, posture, balance, muscles, energy, nerves, emotions, movement and body functions, which in turn aims to positively affect the eyes and vision.
Once we understand the wearers profile, we prescribe balanced, highly customised, activating lens and prism prescriptions. These lenses aim to change the way the wearers eye muscles work while supporting how the brain processes visual information.
Just as you work out your body with weights and movement, the glasses we prescribe act as a personal trainer for your eyes that are designed to work just by wearing them, without the hassle of boring and limited time-consuming eye exercises.
The lenses aim to also encourage improvement of health conditions that are linked to, being caused by or exacerbated by poor vision, while aiming to avoid the usual deterioration of vision commonly experienced by long-term glasses wearers. The eyes affect the mind and body, and the mind and body affect the eyes.Both need optimal support. These links and relationships are thoroughly investigated in depth for each person.
Just as good air, food and water provides integral fuel for the body, good light, presented correctly, provides integral fuel for vision and mind.
The function of your eyes has a flow on effect to the rest of your mind and body. Just as changing any nerve or muscle group in the body does.
Microprism integrative prescriptions are derived by focusing two eyes together in specific binocular refractive patterns for clear perspective and detail discrimination. In Microprism progressive lens manufacturing, the prism is located in unique non-traditional active locations to ensure clear, open, comfortable and dynamic vision. Microprism directional prisms (up, down, in and out summations) are located differently and affect eye muscles, changing eye shape and location and the perception of objects within a space. The internal shift on eye muscles via the incoming prism re-directed light, effects and brings into alignment and balance, how near, distance and perspective are observed. This ideal state of alignment brings ease to the optical, motor and sensory system and has a positive flow on effect to the rest of the body. Light feeds the whole biophotonic transduction system of the body.
