Enchroma is a company that has developed the latest in technology when it comes to color deficiency eyewear. Enchroma was founded in 2010 by Dr. Don McPherson, PhD (glass scientist) and Andrew Schmeder (U.C. Berkeley mathematician).
These revolutionary glasses combine the latest in color perception neuroscience and lens innovation to improve the lives of patients who have colorblindness. They are designed for outdoor and indoor use to provide the best quality vision possible.
Enchroma delivers an exceptional combination of clarity, brightness, and 100% UVA/UVB protection. All glasses are made with non-glare coatings on both sides to boost the clarity and reduce haze.
These glasses come with a 2-year warranty and if unsatisfied, there’s 60-day money back guarantee.
Will They Work?
Color blindness is not a singular condition. It encompasses a range of conditions, from mild to severe, that can cause each person to see color differently. EnChroma glasses are designed to improve color vision of people with forms of anomalous trichromacy, which are estimated to comprise four out of five cases of color blindness. The most common types are Protanomaly and Deuteranomaly, which are forms of partial red-green color blindness. In the most extreme cases, the complete absence of one of the cones photopigments, called Protanopia or Deuteranopia, are considered dichromats who may see limited results due to the complete inability to see red and green color differences. Reduced color discrimination of shades of blue and yellow is called Tritanomaly, which is not typically considered a form of color blindness. Fortunately, most cases of color blindness respond well to EnChroma spectral lens technology, enabling the perception of bright, vibrant color.
