    So yesterday I went to the optometrist for my DoDMERB vision test. When examining my eyes, the doctor said he thought I may have a very slight issue with Blue/Yellow colorblindness. I've never thought I had an issue, however my grandfather is Red/Green colorblind.

    Anyway, before I digress too far, at the very end of the appointment they did a test with little flashing lights. Where when I looked into the machine, periodically, small lights would flash and I would have to press a button when I saw one. While I was looking around the internet just now, I saw something about the Falant Test. Is that the test they gave me? Or is this just part of the normal exam?

    Thank you for your time. :rolleyes:
