At the time when the survey was carried out, most dichromats were aware of their defect and 71% became aware of it because they experienced difficulties with colour-related tasks.
In total 49% of dichromats and 18% of anomalous trichromats who participated in the Steward and Cole survey (1) reported difficulties with distinguishing the colours of traffic light signals.
A classification of the defect may be possible at the same time, but the anomaloscope will be needed to differentiate between anomalous trichromats and dichromats.
Therefore, some anomalous trichromats may have colour discrimination which is nearly as good as that of normals, whereas others may resemble dichromats.
