The opponent process theory of vision (Hering 1878) differs from the trichromatic theory in that it is based on four primary colors (red, green, blue, and yellow) that combine to produce all the other colors.
Trichromatic vision, often described inappropriately as 'red', 'green'and 'blue', is derived from three cone classes which contain photopigment with relatively long (L), medium (M) and short (S) wavelength spectral sensitivity.
Therefore, it is possible to use CRI as an indicator of adherence to prime color theory for trichromatic stimuli.

This trichromatic theory of vision assumes that people inherit a separate gene for each of the three photopigments.
These statements are in conflict with standard trichromatic color theory.

It can also be seen in the trichromatic peaks of 450, 530, and 610 nm that we referenced in our article [Houser, Fotios and Royer, 2009] based on Thornton's work [Thornton, 1992a], which do not coincide with the peaks of the cone photoreceptors.
Attempts have been made to develop equations for the evaluation of tritan deficiencies, (13,14) but these have been problematic, as the region within which the match has to be made is trichromatic, and is also subject to the effects of lens and macular pigments.
