  • PROPRIETARY SPECTRAL LENS TECHNOLOGY: Our award-winning lens technology is the result of more than a decade of pioneering research by EnChroma scientists, and is uniquely engineered to enhance color vision for people with color vision deficiency.
  • SCIENTIFICALLY FORMULATED AND DESIGNED IN BERKELEY, CA: EnChroma’s eyewear is made in our medical device manufacturing facility where EnChroma technicians perform 100% of lens machining, assembly, and quality verification using a combination of imported and US components.
  • BEST-IN-CLASS LENS MATERIAL: Our lens material is made with Trivex®, an optical-grade resin that delivers a best-in-class combination of impact protection, lightness, and clarity.
  • 100% UV PROTECTION: EnChroma lenses block 100% of the UVA and UVB radiation components in sunlight. According to the World Health Organization, UVA rays are unfiltered by the atmosphere and can cause the most damage to vision health.

How does this warning relate to EnChroma glasses?

What testing does EnChroma perform on its frames?

Rich in colour

I never knew that colours were so rich, especially green. I find that now even when I’m not wearing the glasses I can appreciate colour more. The glasses are amazing.

They worked!

My father finally is able to see colours of the sky - for 50 years it was only light and shadows for him! And now forest has so many colours not only one shade of green. We cannot wait until summer and when all the flowers will come out! Thank you <3
*sorry for my english

Amazing !

I was astonished just how well these glasses worked, fit, and accompanied my style preference! A truly eye opening experience

Best gift ever!

My girlfriend gave me the Ellis Cx3 Sunglasses as a Christmas gift. I was so excited, I didn't even know what to say as I opened the packaging. As I put the shades on, I quickly realized this was one of the greatest gifts I've ever received! I was nearly in tears with how different everything looked to me. I've always had trouble with reds and greens, blues and purples, all like colors etc, but with them on I could clearly tell the difference between all the colors. After a few hours of wearing the shades, walking around the neighborhood looking at flowers, trees, cars, the sky, and just everything, my eyes began to adjust and I felt more comfortable. Now what really impressed me was when I got in the car and drove around town. I was taken back with how clearly I could see the difference between the red, yellow and green in the stop lights at intersections. What a freakin' relief, after years of being overly cautious making sure the light I was looking at was at the top or bottom of the three. I've been wearing them for a little over two months now, and I love them so much. I've always worn sunglasses regularly and would go through cheap pairs left and right, or I would lose them and just buy another, but these are like my prized possession now and I always keep them clean and with the case near like in my jacket pocket or backpack. -It's kind of sad to say, but whenever I take them off, the initial change until my eyes adjust constantly reminds me of how bland life has looked to me all these years (I'm 29), and I just never knew any different until now. I love them! Thank you to my wonderful girlfriend, and thank you Enchroma!
P.S. I also ride motorcycles and prefer to wear full face helmets and replace the windshield visors with dirt bike goggles. The reason I do this is also related to my colorblindness. My question to the people at Enchroma is, can you make thin flexible lenses (like the ones that snap into my goggles) out of the same material as the Ellis ...

Enchroma glasses
