Colour Blind: "Doctors with Daltonism and the Implications for Counselling"

This article by J Anthony and B Spalding, gives the results of a questionnaire study of 40 doctors with this deficiency of whom 35 were GPs. It is designed to show the range of difficulties they notice due to it in everyday life and in medical practice. It was thought that doctors, as trained observers with some knowledge of colour vision, would provide valuable evidence on the subject. Counselling, and an effective method of providing it, is then discussed.
