The Intuitive Colorimeter was designed by Professor Arnold Wilkins at the British Medical Research Council in 1993. The discovery of the underlying photosensitive condition of Visual Stress had previously not been recognised by vision professionals as a problem that could prevent learning and that required diagnosis and treatment.
The Intuitive Colorimeter was scientifically designed to present sequentially the colours in colour space, thereby allowing a patient to swiftly identify the precision colour to best alleviate their symptoms. The instrument was subsequently made available to purchase by licensed vision professionals, and Colorimetry clinics now operate nationwide and overseas.
Four generations of the Intuitive Colorimeter have come to market since 1993, including the latest model – the Curve – which offers a fully digital assessment process.
