Abstract

Studies utilizing the Rayleigh equation have indicated that color normal subjects may use widely varying proportions of red and green to match a standard yellow. Six subjects with known refractive errors and with normal color vision made a series of red-green matches to a standard amount of the yellow stimulus. The green/red ratios were plotted against equivalent spherical error in diopters, and it was found that the refractive error can be used to make reasonably good predictions of the green/red ratio.
