Really brings out the red!
The use of the enchroma glasses helps to distinguish more shades of colours.
First couple of times wearing the glasses was weird. All these colors popping up! Finally able to differentiate the shades I was seeing. Can't wait for deer season, will be able to see them!
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.
Enchroma has a nice product, but you should not expect a miracle. I use them when driving and while outdoors and they greatly enhance the reds and greens around me. They allow me to see more clearly the oranges and purples, too, but they are not the end all for protanomaly color blind people like me.
I confess that when I first put them on I didn't get the earth shattering revelation some have had on the videos, but after wearing them for a couple of hours I realized my fence was red and the photinias in the back yard had some beautiful red growth. I had NEVER seen these before. Flowers in general are amazing more beautiful.
My final assesment is that they are worth every penny as an aid to seeing color, but don't expect that they will completely eliminate your color blindness.
This is exactly how enchroma advertises these glasses. My expectations were met, but I was disappointed I didn't have the earth shattering experience like some of Youtube.
I"m sure over time they will get even better and I am considering purchasing the indoor version.
