Peripheral Vision Test

During my senior year of high school in my AP psychology class, my teacher showed us a test, or more like an example, of how you start to loose senses of color in your peripheral vision. He had a volunteer come sit in a desk in the front of the class to be the one who was getting their peripheral vision tested. My teacher had him stare at another student who was standing up by the chalkboard. While the volunteer was staring at his classmate, my teacher would hold up a colored marker and ask him what color it was, each time he got it right, my teacher would hold up another color a little more into his peripheral vision each time. Eventually, when the marker was held to a certain point in his peripheral vision, the volunteer could see the shape of the marker but couldn't tell what color it was.
