This chapter examines colour vision in patients with an early stage of arterial hypertension without end-organ damage. A significantly higher median error score in Roth's 28-hue (E) desaturated colour-arrangement test was observed for patients with arterial hypertension than for the control group. These results should be taken into account in colour-vision testing to avoid diagnostic interference between specifically ocular diseases (e.g. glaucoma) and arterial hypertension.
