Gulden Intros Two New Compact Magnetic D-15 Color Blindness Diagnostic Tools
Product: Magnetic D-15 color blindness diagnostic kits
Top Line: Gulden Ophthalmics is introducing two new compact magnetic D-15 color blindness diagnostic kits that offer significant advantages over previous D-15 test kits. The kits are comprised of numbered colored discs housed in a compact sealed plastic box that is only 16” x 4”, thus saving valuable counter space in the examination room compared to other magnetic D-15 kits.
Close Up: The tests are easy to administer and simple and easy to perform by patients, according to Gulden. Patients simply use a magnetic stylus to arrange the discs in the correct color order as they perceive it and the arrangement is then evaluated. Patients with color perception deficiencies (“color blindness”) will have difficulties trying to arrange the colored discs and will usually make mistakes. The evaluation of the patient’s arrangement differentiates normal color perception from congenital or acquired moderate and strong defects in deutan (green and green weak blindness), protan (red blindness) or tritan (blue-yellow blindness) color discrimination. Based on the mistakes the type of color blindness as well its severity can be calculated. The tests can be used for occupational evaluation and classification. Encased in the plastic enclosure, the discs are kept clean, are not subject to fingerprints as in unenclosed, unprotected test kits, and cannot be lost; a convenient velcro cover protects the discs from fading due to sunlight and ambient light. The kits include a magnetic stylus with leather pouch and score sheet.
Vital Stats: The widely-used popular D-15 color blindness tests are available in this new, compact, magnetic format: the standard Farnsworth Dichotomous D-15 and the Lanthony Desaturated D-15 with desaturated color discs, which make the test more challenging.

Once the spring hinge temple has been removed from the frame, the spring hinge retracts into its housing, making it nearly impossible to realign with the frame end and reinsert the screw. This patented, handy tool kit has everything you need to extend the spring hinge from its housing, simplifying the realignment and assembly.
