Abstract

A review was conducted to explore possible consequences of deuteranomaly, a specific type of congenital colour vision deficiency (CVD), for children in education. Electronic searches of five databases were performed. Key search terms included: child*, colo?r vision, colo?r blind*, colour def*, deuter*, education*, health*, wellbeing, occupation*, to identify empirical studies published in English during the period 1990–2016. Analysis provided evidence of challenges to school students with congenital vision deficiencies, and the impact of deuteranomaly in educational settings. Four themes emerged: (1) requirements for deciphering colour-coding that may affect educational attainment; (2) mental health and wellbeing; (3) implications for future occupational choices, and (4) relation of chromatic discrimination to certain cognitive abilities. The findings prompt recommendation of certain interventions, specifically relating to colour vision screening at early school age, and raising awareness of challenges of school students with deuteranomaly.
