  • PROPRIETARY SPECTRAL LENS TECHNOLOGY: Our award-winning lens technology is the result of more than a decade of pioneering research by EnChroma scientists, and is uniquely engineered to enhance color vision for people with color vision deficiency.
  • SCIENTIFICALLY FORMULATED AND DESIGNED IN BERKELEY, CA: EnChroma’s eyewear is made in our medical device manufacturing facility where EnChroma technicians perform 100% of lens machining, assembly, and quality verification using a combination of imported and US components.
  • BEST-IN-CLASS LENS MATERIAL: Our lens material is made with Trivex®, an optical-grade resin that delivers a best-in-class combination of impact protection, lightness, and clarity.
  • 100% UV PROTECTION: EnChroma lenses block 100% of the UVA and UVB radiation components in sunlight. According to the World Health Organization, UVA rays are unfiltered by the atmosphere and can cause the most damage to vision health.

How does this warning relate to EnChroma glasses?

Like most eyewear frames, EnChroma frames may contain stainless steel hardware components such as wire, hinges and screws. Stainless steel is an alloy of iron, chromium and nickel. Metallic nickel has been classified as a possible carcinogen and is on the Prop 65 warning list.

What testing does EnChroma perform on its frames?

EnChroma uses an independent third party laboratory to test its frames and lenses for compliance with international standards including EN 16128:2015. EnChroma frames are compliant with the requirement for upper limit of nickel migration as specified in paragraph 1(b) and (c) of entry 27 of Annex XVII to the REACH. REACH is a European Union regulation concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of Chemicals. However, the REACH is not recognized by the State of California. For more information and Prop 65 and how it applies to eyewear and EnChroma products contact support@enchroma.com

NOTICE: EnChroma glasses are an optical assistive device for enhancement of color discrimination in persons with color blindness; they are not a cure for color blindness. Results vary depending on the type and extent of color vision deficiency per individual. Read More

EnChroma does not endorse the use of the glasses to pass occupational screening tests such as the Ishihara test: these tests may be required in occupations where public safety is at risk such as public transport operators, electricians and first responders. Wearing of any filtering lens including colored contact lenses during test administration is prohibited and may invalidate the accuracy of the results.

Enchroma glasses helped me pass my medical examination

As a deutan person, I've always had trouble distinguishing between red/green/gray colour nuances, especially in low light conditions.
I've known about Enchroma for several years now, but the high price range kept me from buying a pair.
Recently, I was deemed unable to pass an eye examination in my local country, since any type of colour deficiency disqualifies you. I know other countries have no issues with this, and our local laws are poorly written so it's up to the doctor who examines you to decide whether you're a fit or not.
So I took a leap of faith and bought 2 Ellis glasses (indoor and outdoor) following the colour blindness test and subsequent instructions on Enchroma's website. It was a costly leap of faith, and the import taxes were more than 30% of the total cost of the glasses.
At the end of the day, it was totally worth it: I tried my medical exam one more time and was able to pass. The doctor deemed me eligible with the condition I wear the glasses, which I have been doing ever since.
But if I am to be frank, the sensation of wearing them was not a life changing event for me. I can already see most of the colours that surround me, albeit I mix them up sometimes. It clearly makes me more assertive when talking about "greenish", "reddish" or "uhm, kind-a-grayish" colours, and it'll definitely help me out when driving, and that's why I do wear the glasses.
I'm sure the sensation is different for everyone, as the level of colour deficiency is individual for each of us, so I do encourage anyone who is colour blind to give the glasses a try. You might be surprised by the effect.
Thank you Enchroma for bringing more colour in my life!


These are amazing! They were purchased for my husband and it's so wonderful to see him experience the simplest things that we take for granted, such as a simple commercial on TV. He's able to sit in his chair and watch his favorite shows and see what we see now.

Excelente resultado!

Los lentes de uso interior resultaron excelentes para corregir mis deficiencias, repetí el test de colores y pocas fallé, gracias por existir y darnos la oportunidad de ver el mundo de colores...


The Ellis Cx1 indoor glasses are amazing. These were bought for my husband and it is heart melting to watch him look at the world in color. Stained glass windows were something he enjoyed seeing.
He is getting horrible headaches from using them so he’s going to have to work with them to prevent the headaches.

Far below expectations.

I bought this glass after took a test from enchroma website ,and after as per guidelines I had ordered. Even wearing these glasses after a long time I am unable to see any difference even I am unable to achieve the test which is available in enchroma website. I am very upset.

Hello Ashish, Our glasses are not intended to pass the test on our website. Many new EnChroma users are tempted to retake our color blindness test with our glasses to try to 'pass'. This doesn't work because color blindness tests use simulated vision conditions that do not compare with real world performance! Glasses with a tinted lens that distorts color to reveal what is hidden within the Ishihara plate are what would allow one to pass the test. Our glasses are designed to help with color confusion without sacrificing accuracy. That being said, we stand behind all of our products and want every customer to be FULLY satisfied. We provide a 60-day money back guarantee and free return shipping within the U.S. plus a 2 year product warranty. If that doesn’t work for you, please contact return@enchroma.com to initiate a return or if there is anything we can do to provide a positive outcome. Thank you for trying EnChroma!
