How to Gift EnChroma Glasses in 5 Easy Steps

How to Gift EnChroma Glasses in 5 Easy Steps

So you want to give a more meaningful gift they'll never forget? You’ve come to the right place! Follow these 5 easy steps on how to give the gift of bright, vibrant color vision to the person in your life with color blindness.

1. Are they color blind? - Take the test

First, the most important question: is the person you are buying EnChroma glasses for color blind? Our glasses are specifically made for red-green color blindness, which accounts for 99% of color blind cases. If you’re not sure, you can have them take our test to find out. The test will give you the type and severity of their color blindness as well as whether or not our glasses can help.

2. Pick a lens

For first-timers, we recommend our outdoor lens. The outdoor lens features a stronger filter that’s best used in strong outdoor lighting. It tends to produce a bigger ‘wow’ effect when wearing our glasses for the first time. Our indoor glasses are designed to be used in lower light settings like under indoor lights or with televisions and computer screens. We design lenses for different types of red-green color blindness. Check out our lens guide for more help picking the right lens or our prescription guide for custom Rx EnChroma glasses.

3. Pick a frame

We’ve got frames for every face. Choose the frame that goes with their personal style. Need some help getting started? Check out best sellers below!

Ellis is an essential frame. Its lightweight and durable construction make it a great go-anywhere frame.


The Derby adds a touch of modern to any look. Perfect for the fashion-forward person in your life, its on-trend frame comes in three colors.


The Canyon is your best bet for the outdoorsy type. It’s premium metal frame and light weight make it the perfect pick for the color blind adventurer in your life.

4. Make Your Purchase

Once you’ve picked a frame, you can make your purchase. Don’t forget to double check your frame and lens selections before you buy, just in case.

All EnChroma glasses are shipped free (US orders only) and come with our 60-day trial guarantee. If your friend or loved one is not 100% satisfied with their glasses, you can return them to us for a full refund. Learn more about our return policy.

5. Plan the Reveal

Now for the fun part: the reveal! What’s the most colorful place you can think of? The forest? The beach? Your favorite amusement park? Wherever it is, give your gift recipient the best possible view when they try their glasses for the first time. Gather all the friends and family you can find so everyone can share in the EnChroma experience. We provide a package of balloons for you to decorate with, but feel free to add your own colorful decorations too! If you need ideas, we’ve got some of our favorite EnChroma reveals to help get you inspired!

Don’t forget to bring a camera or cell phone along to capture the moment while you are giving your color blind glasses gift; we’re just as excited as you are to see the big EnChroma moments that you put together!
