Excited to give EnChroma glasses as a gift but not sure where to start? We've got you covered!


Our online EnChroma Color Vision Test is a great way to gauge the type and level of color blindness for your gift recipient to help determine which glasses are best for them.

If the gift is to be given as a surprise, we recommend another quick way to informally assess the color vision of your giftee. We call it the “Traffic Light Test”.

Here's how it works:

1. While driving together, ask the gift recipient to describe how they see a traffic light.

2. If they describe the bottom light as "pale green" or "white," match their responses to the diagrams below.

3. If the traffic light test reflects mild/moderate or moderate/strong level of color blindness, EnChroma glasses should work for them! Move to Step 2 to Choose a Lens.


Indoor vs Outdoor Glasses?

If this is your gift recipient’s first pair of EnChroma glasses, we recommend purchasing the outdoor glasses The outdoor (sunglass) lenses deliver the maximum strength of color enhancement.  The indoor lenses are less powerful and better suited for limited indoor applications such as viewing computers and TV. See our Lens Guide for additional tips.

My gift recipient wears prescription glasses. Can I get EnChroma with a prescription?

Yes! Most styles are compatible with a prescription. Check our EnChroma Prescription Guide for helpful tips. Or, consider the Receptor Glasses that conveniently fit over their regular glasses for a versatile option.

Do I need to know what type of color blindness my gift recipient has before I order?

No, but it is helpful. EnChroma glasses are effective in 4 out of 5 cases of red-green color blindness. Our outdoor glasses are most effective for most recipients overall.

How can I be sure that EnChroma glasses will work for my gift recipient?

Each person’s experience with EnChroma is unique. Most people see results in less than 30 minutes, but people with strong color blindness may need more than one try. We recommend wearing the glasses for at least 10 hours over 1-2 weeks to experience the full effect.

What is EnChroma’s return policy if they don’t work?

We stand behind all of our products and want you to be fully satisfied. If for any reason the gift recipient wants to return their EnChroma glasses, they can do so within 60 days for a full refund (return shipping costs, import taxes not included). All products also come with a full year warranty. See our Return Policy for more details.

Can I buy a gift card?

Yes, you can purchase an EnChroma Digital Gift Card. They are emailed directly to you and arrive within a few minutes after they are purchased.

Is a carrying case included with the EnChroma glasses? What else in included?

Every pair of EnChroma glasses arrives in a colorful box with a premium hard case, cleaning cloth, microfiber carrying bag for additional protection and User Guide for helpful usage and care tips. We also include colorful balloons as an extra bonus to celebrate the gift recipient's first full color experience! A one-year warranty is also included.

I’d like to capture my gift recipient’s first reaction to their color experience on video. Any tips?

  • Select a well-lit location, preferably outside for the maximum first reaction experience and filming conditions
  • Film ideally using your phone in landscape mode to capture the whole scene and make it easy to share via social media
  • After your gift recipient puts on the glasses, give them time to adjust to what they are seeing. It might take them by surprise and everyone’s experience is unique.
  • Consider inflating the EnChroma balloons in advance (included outside of the EnChroma internal package for easy access) to have fun sharing and naming color right away or to observe before and after color experiences
  • Invite friends and family to share the experience!
  • Share on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube and be sure to tag #enchroma. We’d love to hear your story.

Colorful balloons were featured in many of the videos that others posted on social media. Do I need to order those separately?

EnChroma balloons are included free with every purchase! Naming and sharing recognition of new colors is a fun part of the color experience so you may want to open the external shipping packaging to pull out the balloons and inflate them in advance.
