I'm weakly red-green colorblind, whereby shades of peach, pink and pale nuances of green/reds tend to melt into each other and I cannot tell them apart. Bright reds are also rather dull or can appear orange. The Atlas (Outdoor) Glasses I bought have been interesting.
When putting them on for the first time, everything appears much more red. Eventually, the visual system adapts in a few seconds. Subsequently, almost all colors appear more pronounced, as if a Instagram filter has been added (my best analogy), and colors are more saturated. This includes yellow, orange, blue, green, red, magenta and the rest - they “pop” out. When I then remove the glasses, everything appears more green-shifted at first, and then returns to how it was before I used the glasses, i.e. pale and unsaturated.
Additionally, after wearing the glasses for a few hours every day for about 1 week, I noticed positive effects even after removing them, such that red colors appear more pronounced in dark environments. Hopefully these effects can continue and the glasses can somehow train my visual system to distinguish reds, greens and more subtle nuances thereof. I’m very happy with them anyways. Walking around in the city can be an adventure, I could see an odd shade of pink/magenta on a house exterior that I haven’t seen before. Overall, a very unique experience.
The glasses are a little bit more heavy than my Ray Bans Aviators
Although they are made for outdoors, the glasses are not polarized
