  • 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.

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.

Really Red Red!

I bought these glasses for my husband. They were a gift I had been wanting to give him ever since I first heard of Enchroma glasses, and it was his birthday, so what better gift?
When he first put them on, I didn’t tell him what they were. I took him downtown to our town square where we have several very beautiful and colorful murals painted on the buildings. He was facing away from them, looking at me, and he did just that-looked at me. I told him to turn around and look at the mural. When he did, immediately he began to tell me what the colors were. He turned to another mural and told me the trunk on the tree was blue! I had to take a good look myself, then realized he was right-the trunk was painted a vivid blue!
But the neatest moment was when he turned again, looking around, and spotted a stop sign. “Wow, that’s a Really Red Red!” It was the very first time my truck driver husband had ever seen the true color of a simple stop sign.
I thank you, and my husband thanks you for the wonderful gift of a world full of beautiful color.

Highly Recommend

To anyone considering buying these as a gift, make sure the recipient takes Enchroma's colorblind test, and keep in mind the glasses might not work. Bought these for my colorblind boyfriend with that mindset. He was skeptical at first as to whether they would work - only to go around gushing about how much he loved them for the following weekend to all his friends and relatives! The look on his face when he was able to differentiate certain colors for the first time was priceless. If EnChroma ends up making indoor glasses for my boyfriend's specific type of colorblindness, I will most certainly purchase them.

A surprise 50th gift

What to get someone special? After 50 years of bland colours we gifted our nephew these glasses. Seeing the astonished look on his face when trying them on, was the gift that keeps giving! Great product, lovely designs, super fast delivery to Australia, and during COVID to boot!! Thank you for changing another life 😁

I'm red green colorblind and these glasses fix it.

When I first received the glasses, it was 1 hour before sunset and somewhat cloudy ( Not clear and sunny which would have been better). I have grown accustomed to not seeing colors like everyone else. When I first tried the glasses, It made somewhat of a difference, but not overwhelming. Red cars got vibrant and I saw a difference between blue and purple color items. After about 1/2 hour I went inside and took glasses off. I had a very minor headache that went away by itself within 1/2 hour.
Next day I went outside in bright sunlight. The colors popped! Things looked strangely different. It was pleasant, but different from the muted colors I saw before getting the glasses. No headaches and I could tell the difference between a green and yellow traffic signal at a long distance. That is a big deal. I fly remote control airplanes that go as far as 400 yards away. Again I can see a big difference instead of just a silhouette. It is way easier to fly my airplanes with these glasses. I'm still getting used to seeing blue and purple as different colors. Now I am learning which is which. Browns and greens are distinctly different as well. Yellow and light orange colors are more different too.
I was very skeptical before purchasing these glasses as I am 73 years old, and I have figured out how to compensate without "New fangled" tools. "Change is inevitable. Embrace it or get run over by it" I've been told. It certainly is a great change in what I now see. Can't wait for them to create glasses to see more colors indoors and on computer screens, for my type of color blindness.
I'm looking forward to fishing with these glasses to see what if anything changes. It's fun to see colors like never before.

I bought these for my boyfriend who is strong protan. We were both nervous to see if they would work or not because of some of the reviews. But THEY WORKED! Before the glasses he could only see red but with the glasses, they enhanced it even more for him. He was amazed at all of the colors he was missing and loves the glasses! We only wish that there was indoor glasses for his type.
