Would you like to see how colours of objects and lights are measured?

Is your eyewear changing your colour perception?

Did you know that just as some people can see fine detail better than others, some are also able to distinguish colours better than others? Poorer colour vision can make a person unsuited to professions that rely on colour coding. Measure your colour vision sensitivity and see if you can pass occupational colour vision tests!

Join the Colour Society of Australia for a tour of the Optics & Radiometry Laboratory (ORLAB) at the UNSW School of Optometry and Vision Science in the company of its Director Dr Mei-Ying Boon and other ORLAB staff.

ORLAB is a self-sustaining test, calibration and research facility within the School of Optometry and Vision Science at UNSW Australia that provides its services to industry, maintains a research programme and supports standards development at national and international levels. ORLAB aims to provide services throughout the areas of light, colour and optics.
