Now New Glasses Help the Color-blind to See Greens, Reds for the First Time

Fashion has always been challenging for Sheila Carter. Like other color-blind people, she limits her wardrobe to hues like blue and black that can be easily mixed and matched.

But a new pair of high-tech eyewear made by EnChroma, a Berkeley, California startup, has changed her worldview.

“Sunsets are amazing,” said the 60-year-old who can now see the full spectrum of the rainbow.

”This morning has been amazing and overwhelming,” wrote Ray D. of Arizona in a testimonial posted on EnChroma’s website. “I was able to look into my wife’s eyes and see the many shades of green and brown – something I cannot think about even now without getting emotional.”

Color also is important for safety because it conveys warning messages on painted street curbs, road signs and traffic lights while driving.
