Abstract AIM: The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate acquired color vision defects in the early stages of primary glaucoma and in patients at risk for glaucoma. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Patients with primary open-angle glaucoma, normal-tension glaucoma and ocular hypertension were examined with the IF-2 anomaloscope. The Rayleigh equation and the Moreland equation were tested. We studied the relationships between color vision defects and the other tested variables. RESULTS: We found the mean value of the setting range of the Moreland equation significantly increased in all tested groups. Color vision disturbances were found in 57\% of eyes with glaucoma and in 31\% of eyes with ocular hypertension. We found a positive correlation between the blue-green colour vision defects and the perimetric changes in the glaucomatous eyes. These results indicate a decrease in color discriminating sensitivity in the short wavelength part of the visible spectrum in patients with glaucoma as well as in patients with ocular hypertension. CONCLUSION: Blue-yellow color vision testing with the anomaloscope may serve as an additional test in the early diagnosis of glaucoma but the absence of dyschromatopsia does not exclude the disease.
