Presentation Description : Since birth, the human visual system undergoes anatomical, physiological, and functional changes which are characterised by a progressive improvement in the main visual functions. In my talk, I will concentrate on the changes that regard colour vision. I will present an overview of past and more recent studies which show that these changes occur until adolescence. I will then examine how the results obtained from different laboratories may vary when using different techniques or experimental tasks. Finally, I will consider the importance of an appropriate and accurate colour vision assessment in children, and its implications in the examination of children with visual dysfunctions.

This is an abstract that was submitted for the 2016 ARVO Annual Meeting, held in Seattle, Wash., May 1-5, 2016.
