According to the data that Lenstore gathered through the test (around 2,000 Britons), similar to vision, they found that color perception declined with age, and that and men and women peaked at age 31 to 35.
However, despite the age decline, men at the 66 to 89 age bracket retained better color perception than women of the same age.
Lenstore also revealed that women were better at at perceiving the colors in the test, scoring 57.7%, compared to 53.8% for men. People who spoke three or more languages also performed the best, scoring the highest average with 60% correct answers.
