Optics Engineered for Color Vision
Part optics, part neuroscience, EnChroma® glasses unlock a new world of color for people with color blindness. Our glasses are designed to make you look good, too, so better color vision can be a seamless part of your everyday routine.The EnChroma® lens technology is based on over a decade of research effort to understand the causes of color blindness and how to engineer an optical technology platform to address the problem.
How the Eye Sees Color
The structure of the eye projects light and images onto the retina, where a dense matrix of approximately 6 million retinal cone cells turn that picture into neural signals transmitted up to the visual cortex. Each cell is ‘color specific,’ responding mainly to light of specific frequencies. The three different types of cone cells correspond to the three primary colors of light: red, green and blue.
Leading-Edge Color Blind GlassesPatented Technology
For Color Vision EnChroma® created the new frontier in color vision technology. These color blind glasses are uniquely engineered to give those with color blindness the ability to see the broad spectrum of bright color most of us take for granted. Utilizing a patented light filter technique, this lens technology is applied with mathematical precision to address common forms of red-green colorblindness.
Maximum Color Impact
EnChroma® color blind glasses are designed with Outdoor and Indoor lenses for optimal use in different lighting conditions. Bright sunlight provides the maximum color impact, so the Outdoor Glasses offer the perfect choice for your first pair of EnChroma® glasses. EnChroma® Indoor Glasses are designed for lower light conditions such as cooking, or viewing computers and TV.
