EnChroma Color-Enhancing Eyewear: These glasses feature a proprietary color-enhancing coating that helps people with color vision deficiency (CVD) by amplifying the sense of color. The glasses are appreciated best by those who are curious about the world of color, who are visual learners or keen observers, designers, artists, makers, thinkers.
How it Works: Unlike the gimmicky pink- and rose-colored glasses of the past, which only temporarily alter your perception of color before the effect wears off, the EnChroma lens enhances color saturation without distorting the overall balance of color. The optical technology partitions light into discrete spectral bands before it reaches the eye, enhancing and clarifying the retinal neural signals responsible for trichromatic color vision.
About Color Vision Deficiency: The most common type of CVD is hereditary red-green color blindness, occurring in one out of every twelve boys and men, and in one out of 200 girls and women. EnChroma glasses can assist with 8 out of 10 cases.
In addition, CVD can develop as the eye matures: past the age of 50 color perception can diminish. Many appreciate the heightened sense of color that EnChroma glasses bring and it’s positive effect on eyesight and mood. Even for those with normal color vision, EnChroma lenses are disrupting the state-of-the-art in optics for recreational users due to their superior color-amplification effect.
