Lesions in the visual pathway result in abnormal colour vision in specific quadrants of the visual field or hemianopic loss of colour perception.
If the lesion is large, a hemianopic visual field defect might also be present in the contralateral field; for this reason, gross assessment of the visual field by confrontation methods can be useful.
