Farnsworth-Munsell 100

Quantitative Color Blind Tests or Arrangement Tests are used to provide a detailed analysis of color blindness and/or a person’s ability to accurately perceive colors. These color blind tests consists of a certain number of colored discs or plates which have to be arranged in the correct color order. One of the most common color arrangement tests is the Farnsworth-Munsell 100 Hue Color Vision Test.

Farnsworth-Munsell 100 hue test

As the name signifies it contains 100 color plates or discs, which need to be arranged in the correct color coded order.  The test contains four distinct rows of similar color hues, each containing 25 distinct variations of each hue. The person being tested must arrange the discs within the tray to create a continuum of gradually changing hue.


The Farnsworth-Munsell 100 Hue Color Vision Test is very time consuming and reveals the type of color blindness but can not distinguish between dichromacy and anomalous trichromacy. For accurate results the test should be administered in a viewing booth that simulates natural light as closely as possible.

The shortened version is called the Farnsworth D-15 which contains only 15 numbered plates or discs of different hues. The D15 test, like the Ishihara Color Vision Test, is for color vision screening purposes and cannot quantify the severity of a person’s color blindness.
