Color blind sunglasses are eyeglasses with specially tinted lenses that help a person with color vision deficiency see colors more accurately.
Though color blind glasses will not “cure” color blindness, they give colorblind individuals an opportunity to see the world more accurately and experience a greater spectrum of colors while wearing the glasses. The Best EnChroma Sunglasses
What goes into developing the incredible EnChroma lens that gives color blind people the ability to see colors they only previously imagined? Let’s start with a little background on how we process color vision in the eye.
Normal color vision occurs when white light, which contains within it all the colors of the rainbow, enters the eye. This light activates three kinds of photopigments, one in each of the three photoreceptors sensitive to different parts of the visible spectrum: blue, green and red.
Most types of color blindness occur when the eye’s green and red color sensitivities shift, resulting in too much of an overlap. This excessive overlap causes distinct hues to become indistinguishable. As a result, the number of shades of color a typical color blind person can see may be reduced by as much as 90%.
