In brief: Yes

The tests for colorblindness are straightforward.
All are based on the idea of having patients distinguish colored items or shapes from a background of a different color, which would be indistiguishable for a person with a specific color blindness. The simplest are printed sheets or cards, but many ophthalmolgists and the dmv often use computer based tests based on the same principle.

The ishihara color test is an example of a color perception test for red-green color deficiencies.
It was named after its designer, dr. Shinobu ishihara. Further testing can be done by ophthalmologist.
