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. 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.
We purchased Enchroma glasses for my wife and gave them to her at Disney. Her reaction was priceless! She started to cry saying omg this is what you see? We are so glad we got them for her, they fit and look great on her.
My first time using color-correcting glasses of any kind and it is a significant change for me. After wearing the Derby Cx3 outdoor sunglasses my dad bought me, I'm definitely going to buy indoor ones at some point. The value is absolutely there, just need to save up for them.
About 15 years ago my acceptance to attend a military academy was rescinded after it was determined I have Deuteranopia color blindness. I've since had a fulfilling life and career but finally being able to see colors "normally" has definitely had a positive impact on my outlook (no pun intended).
I have struggled with strong protean colorblindness my entire life. I was skeptical at first that these glasses would make a difference but boy was I wrong. I first wore them yesterday, and for the first time in my life, I can see what red really looks like. I can see the green in a green stop light and my sweaters that look blue and brown to me are actually different shades of green! I'm a 60 year old manly man, but I have to admit that I had tears streaming down my face. Thank you Enchroma!
I’d had Enchroma sunglasses for a couple of years when I lost them. I was so sad! My husband bought me a new pair! Now I’m so happy! I can see the beautiful colors again! Thank You Enchroma! I love, love, love my sunglasses!!!
I have been considering Enchroma glasses for a couple years but was unsure how severe my deficiency was and if they’d truly help. After a couple hours of wearing I can absolutely tell a difference in how saturated natural colors are vs. what I normally see. I’m a colorblind graphic designer and these sunglasses have gotten me interested in the indoor glasses.
