Temporary Tritanopia: Effects of cataract surgery on color
  DOI :  10.2352/issn.2169-2629.2019.27.36  Published OnlineOctober 2019
Abstract

This pilot study made a wide variety of visual measurements before, during, and after bilateral cataract surgery. This article describes the changes in color discrimination and color appearance resulting from cataract implants. It used the F-M 100 Hue Test, color matching of real scenes, and color-balance titration measurements. The pre-surgery data indicated that the previously normal color observers had severe tritanopic anomalies. Lens replacement restored normal color vision.
