My son had a pretty severe case of deutan. So we bout the 10+ Pair that he can wear inside and outside. Best purchase we’ve ever made! He cried. We cried. Our friends cried. These are well made and are holding up great for our very active man child. If you are on the fence just take the leap! You won’t regret it!
He cried when he saw his first sunset with his glasses. “Mom, this is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen”
Ps he’s not a cryer but the emotions overwhelmed him being able to see so many colors.
We got Enchroma glasses for our colorblind 11-year-old son. He says that being able to see colors now has been “life changing.” He can’t believe how bright and nuanced everything looks.
I'm not sure what I was expecting when I got the glasses. I've seen the many emotional videos, but wanted to avoid that situation or expectation. For me I've always felt I can see colour, but not to the extent of others. When I struggle is when the colours are mixed. Being a birder this is incredibly difficult as you have the two worst colours for this being the green from the leaves and often the reds in the birds. I've found this incredibly difficult standing next to other birders who seem to be able to see the contrasting colours much easier. Much to my pleasure today I tried them for the first time in the field. I'd previously experienced the vibrancy of reds on cars and phone boxes, but really wanted to test it in the wild with some rare birds. Well today they were standing out much brighter than ever before. When toggling between wearing them and taking photos without them the difference was significant. I won't try and emulate the tears of others, but will certainly attest to the fact they're enabling my hobby in ways I couldn't have thought possible and that is making me very appreciative.
Yep. Strong Protan, and the glasses seem almost perfect.
I dramatically and unpredictably confused Green and Red. Well that's over.
What still seems peculiar is that so many things that I thought were Blue turn out to be Purple! I've said, "So, THAT'S purple!"
Grass is more saturated. Red cars pop! I saw a sort of lime green car today and paused just to marvel at it. ( I need to buy lemons, limes, and oranges and study them!)
72 years and 51 weeks of colorblindness ... a habit of reflexively saying to myself, "Well, Im not sure what color that is," now has, "Wait! I can tell! Wow!
I recommend these lenses for anyone who tests Strong Protan on the Enchroma site.
My friend loved it, it was a great surprise birthday gift and although she appears to have mild Deutan and she initially thought the glasses didn't show that much difference but I told her to give it a couple more days as per your recommendations and she came back the next day saying she loves it and it is working! Also, worked with her mom, but not her father who appears to have a severe case!
Anyway, thanks for what you do, and the balloons were really nice touch! You really thought of everything!
Thanks again, keep up the good work!
Gifted these with my siblings as a gift to my brother in law. He loved them and now wears them outside everyday. He was so excited to tell us how he used to see and what he couldn’t see or tell apart. The oranges aren’t dull for him anymore, he can see purple which he thought was another shade of blue!! And red and green. These glasses have changed his life.
So about 5 years ago, I received my first pair of EnChroma sunglasses as a Christmas present from my parents. They were unbelievable how everything seemed to sharpen with a vividness of color I had not previously seen. Of course, I managed to forget them in the back of a rental within 18 months and have been meaning to buy another pair.
After finally gifting myself another pair for my birthday, I'm super impressed with the styling of the glasses. These look much better than the previous aviators I had. I really like the look of the Colorados. As far as the lenses go, the same vividness came back after some longer wear periods. I think that if I continue to wear, it will only continue to enhance back to the previous lenses. I had forgotten about the "training" period that was necessary as your brain adapts.
Very happy with my purchase! Thanks for devleoping this amazing product.
I wish I could give more than 5 stars for this rating. My dad is not easily surprised and has never been one to show a lot of emotion. However, when he put these glasses on, he could not believe the new world he was seeing. His exact words were, "...unbelievable!" and, "this is incredible..." I am so glad I decided on these for his Christmas gift this year. Worth every single penny.
I decided to try the Grant Cx1 Indoor glasses based on my experience with the enchroma sunglasses. The indoor glasses' color enhancement is more subtle. In low indoor light their is a noticeable tint. Neither is distracting after a day or two. Like the sunglasses, the indoor lenses open up an entire world of previously under-appreciated color. I wouldn't be without them for browsing the web, watching television or fly-tying. Enchroma applied my tri-focal prescription skillfully. My fields of vision are even clearer than with my normal lenses.
Excellent product, super fast shipping, well boxed and comes with balloons! My 11 year old son was more then thrilled to put these on after opening them for his birthday. He kept saying “You all are so lucky to see like this all the time” and a lot of wows and tears! So thankful for being able to give him the gift of color! Thanks again guys!
It was so much fun watching my husband put on the glasses for the first time. When he looked at the colored balloons that were included with the glasses, his first comment was, they are colored. He then looked around at the neighborhood turning around to see everything in amazement. These glasses open up a whole new colorful world.
I loved my sunglasses, I thought it would do very little and I was really on the fence about getting them because of the amount of bad reviews out there, but from my personal experience, it was worth every penny. Getting to see the colors that everyone around me got to see, it was amazing. I GOT TO SEE G R E E N STOPLIGHTS. IMAGINE THAT. it was fantastic, and I fully plan to get myself some indoor glasses as well.
My youngest son was in tears!!!! My oldest son was just amazed by the vibrant colors. He said everything looked like it was in HD.
I got a pair for my friend for his graduation, and they worked as soon as he tried them on. This is the outside pair, and he was really excited to see flowers popping off the bushes instead of blending in. Great product, I'm grateful these work! 👍
I’m 66 and have never seen color like this. I have a strong protan color blindness. I wish there was an indoor version for me as I am a movie buff. Keep working on it.
