Testing the Relationship Between Eye Color and Sight
Transcript of Testing the Relationship Between Eye Color and Sight
Question & Hypothesis
Q: Does Eye Color Affect a Person's Ability to Identify Color in Low Light?
Hypothesis: If we ask blue, green and brown eyed subjects to identify colors in a low lit room, then
blue eyed subjects will be able to identify the colors the best.
Gathered test subjects with blue, green and brown eyes.
Selected paper, taped to wall. (orange, red, green, yellow, blue)
Made two different rows on two different walls, random order.
Tested one subject at a time.
After two minutes, subjects identified other wall
Recorded their answers.
Repeated steps 4-8 with each test subject .
Analyzed the results.
Sources of Error
Subject waited too long to read the colors (adaptation)
According to data... Blue-eyed subjects performed better.
Possibly due to melanin pigment in iris (little research available).
Procedure & Results
Dim lit room (library closet)
Colored construction paper
9 Test subjects
Larger subject pool
What Does This Mean?
Eyes are vitally important in everyday life

Assists less sensitive individuals in seeing in low light

= shorter reaction time
= longer reaction time
