Color blind people can face many challenges in their day-to-day lives. However, thanks to advancements in technology, there are now solutions available to help those with color blindness see the world in a whole new way. One solution is EnChroma color blind glasses, which have been gaining popularity for their ability to enhance color vision. But how exactly do these glasses work? Keep reading to learn all about these innovative glasses.  

What is color blindness? 

To understand how EnChroma color blind glasses work, it’s important to first understand what color blindness is. Color blindness is usually an inherited genetic condition that affects the cones in your retina, the light-sensitive tissue at the back of your eye. Cones are responsible for detecting different colors, and people who are color blind may have cones that are either missing or not functioning properly. This makes it difficult for them to distinguish between certain colors, such as red and green. 

How do EnChroma glasses work?  

EnChroma color blind glasses are specially designed to enhance color perception for people with red-green color blindness, which is the most common form of color vision deficiency. These glasses use special filters to selectively filter out overlapping wavelengths of light that cause confusion between certain colors. By blocking out overlapping colors, EnChroma glasses help enhance the contrast between different hues, making it easier for those with color blindness to distinguish between them.  

It’s important to note that EnChroma glasses won’t cure color blindness just like regular glasses won’t cure nearsightedness. But for those with color blindness, EnChroma glasses can be truly life-changing. When wearing EnChroma glasses, people often report seeing colors they never knew existed or experiencing colors more vividly than ever before.  

EnChroma color blind glasses are a revolutionary solution for individuals with red-green color blindness, allowing them to experience a fuller spectrum of colors.
