  • 0083 Color Vision Tests

    I’m about to graduate undergrad and have applied to several 0083 positions. I’m also a vet. I’ve always known that I’m color deficient and can’t pass the Ishihara color vision test. I however did pass the Army Infantry color vision test which is just discriminating between red and green squares. Now OPM for 0083 states “must be able to distinguish basic colors”. What test is that exactly? I found the OPM medical certificate and it has the options for Ishihara, Farnsworth Lantern, and can see red/green/yellow. Does anyone know what that last test is? And is that acceptable as “able to distinguish basic colors” for 0083? Thank you.

    Depends on whose conducting the test. Most use the Ishihara test

      This is how I view OPM FORM 178 with regards to color vision:

      Cannot pass Ishihara? Here, take FALANT.
      Cannot pass FALANT? Here, tell me what is red/green/yellow.
      Pass that and you CAN “distinguish basic colors” per OPM 0083 standards.

      Does this sound about right?

        The last test I took it was to distinguish numbers in a pattern. Medical standards are open to interpretation by the agency and the agency medical officer who performs said tests. If they feel you can not pass the test, then they will fail you or require documentation from an opthalmologist
