  • 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.

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.

New Colors for son

My son has strong protan color blindness. He was immediately able to see colors more vividly and distinguish between different colors and even different shades. He was thrilled and brought the pair to his two younger cousins who have color blindness. He did the whole presentation for them with the balloons (before and after). They had the same results and loved being able to see colors better. They ask my son to bring the glasses whenever he visits. Thank you, this is a wonderful product that you have! It is truly revolutionary for color blindness.



Happy with the purchase, a bit expensive but worth it

Our 10-year-old son has a mild form of Deuteranomaly so around 2 weeks back decided to surprise him with a pair of Enchroma Colby outdoor sunglasses. We did not show him any youtube reaction videos nor tell him what the glasses really do. The package was delivered to us in Germany within 4 days from order.

For the big reveal, we visited the nearby park with lots of trees and flowers. The first 10-15 mins ware a bit disappointing as he didn't notice anything out of ordinary. But after a while, he started noticing colours being overall vibrant and beautiful and was able to identify some colours that confused him before. For example, the green traffic signal is now really green and not white or that violet is a different colour than blue. The biggest difference was with reds, as they pop out more and no longer seem shade of brown. He did not notice any improvement with many shades of green though, they appear the same even with his glasses on.

Overall he is very happy with his new pair and doesn't take them off EVER. He wears them on the first thing in the morning and keeps them on till he's in bed. He calls them magic sunglasses and plans to use them in class, let's see how it works out with school administration.

He retook the Ishihara test and there are improvements. Without the glasses, he could identify around 60% of numbers correctly, with the glasses the score has improved to about 80% with an additional 5% improving from seeing ''nothing at all'' to seeing ''something'' but not sure what the number was. The glasses are a bit expensive but worth it. It brings great joy to us seeing him enjoy the world more than before. We are saving up for an indoor pair for school and daily wear.

Endnote: Some colours appear different than they are and cannot be identified correctly. All colours have a reddish tint to them. Whites appear pink and green a dull shade of moss. Also, the colour pallet appears a bit narrow with a less noticeable difference between shades.

We are glad to hear that the glasses are working out for your son! We recommend wearing the glasses for at least 10 hours over the first 1-2 weeks to experience the full effect. Most people see results in less than 30 minutes, but some people may need more time to adjust depending on their type and severity of color blindness and perceptual processing. This explains why your son didn't see anything right away in the first 10-15 minutes, as you noted. Additionally, our glasses are not intended for passing the test. Glasses that would allow you to pass the test would require a tinted lens that distorts color to reveal what is hidden within the Ishihara plate. Our glasses are intended to help alleviate color confusion without sacrificing accuracy. We hope your son continues to enjoy seeing his world in color!

My 9 year old son is seeing colors for the first time! It was an amazing experience. Thank you! Any chance of breaking into the scuba diving mask market with your lenses? Just an idea.

I am very pleased with the results from the glasses and they make distinguishing red and green so much easier.
