In this paper, we describe a new time-sharing, display-based, color-assisted vision system for individuals with color vision problems associated with aging. Most of the proposed type of existing color-assisted vision systems apply to only computer systems or car-navigation systems. Here, we propose a new system that may help even the elderly clearly perceive color signs and indicators. This system has an image-processing unit, a camera and HMD for elderly people which create the enhanced color image. For consistent evaluation and repeatability of experiments, wearing simulated eyeglasses is assumed to be the same as an aged person's vision. The effectiveness of the proposed method is evaluated by applying the SD method.
