6.9 Tests of colour vision
Applicants for Class 1 or Class 2 medical certification who fail the Ishihara Pseudoisochromatic Plates (PIP) colour vision test are to be referred to a centre that conducts Farnsworth lantern (FALANT) testing. Applicants for Class1 or Class 2 medical certification who fail the Farnsworth Lantern tests are to be referred for a test determined by CASA, that simulates an operational situation.
Contact details for tests of colour vision are available on our website.
Note: Colour vision testing for these applicants is to follow the sequence:
- Pseudoisochromatic plates (Ishihara PIP)
- Farnsworth lantern test (FALANT)
- referred for a test determined by CASA, that simulates an operational situation.
A pass on any of these tests will satisfy the requirements for issue of an unrestricted Class 1 or Class 2 medical certificate.
New applicants for Class 3 medical certification are required to pass the Ishihara PIP colour vision test. No additional or alternative colour vision testing is available for this group.
