But given the fact that your computer or cell phone emits only THREE colors of light, there’s no way a standard computer screen can help you determine if you’re a Tetrachromat. Limitation lies with the computer screens since it’s only capable of producing red, green and blue lights. The fourth color that tetrachromats can see is not produced by standard computer monitors. Distinguishing between slightly different shades produced by the three trichromat primaries might be useful in determining the sensitivity of a normal trichromat eye’s sensitivity.
