What’s the difference between Outdoor and Indoor lenses?

EnChroma Cx3 Outdoor Lenses are designed to enhance color vision in outdoor in bright sunlight or partly cloudy conditions and also serve as sunglasses delivering 100% UV blocking and glare protection. EnChroma’s Cx3 Outdoor lenses deliver the maximum color enhancement effect due to the combination of bright colorful light and their lens technology. Available in Cx3 Sun for most types of Color Blindness and Cx3 Sun SP for Strong Protans.

EnChroma Cx1 Indoor Lenses are designed to be used in typical indoor lighting conditions to enhance color vision while performing activities such as school work, cooking, watching movies, browsing the web, and art projects. The Cx1 Indoor lenses best manage the effects of low light in conditions of less brightness and available color. Two custom lens types, Indoor and Indoor DT, are tuned to the special needs of either protans or deutans, to ensure the right solution. For best results, the glasses should be used with bright, full-spectrum lighting.

What lens should I choose if I’m purchasing a gift and don’t know their type of color blindness?

Encourage them to take the EnChroma Color Blind Test to determine their type of color blindness. When that is not possible, choose our most popular and versatile lens, the Cx3 Sun. If you are considering getting them both, we recommend the Cx3 Sun and the Cx1 Indoor. Check our EnChroma Gift Guide for more information.

What are Cx Lenses and do the names Cx1 and Cx3 have any significance?

The Cx1 and Cx3 refer to the overall lens categorization that is standard in the lens industry to indicate the amount of light that is transmitted or filtered through the lens. Cx1 lenses are Category 1 filters (44-80% transmission) for indoor, lower lighting conditions and Cx3 lenses are Category 3 filters (9-18% transmission), typical for sunglasses and bright sun.
