I’m Color Blind. It’s no cure, but Enchroma glasses do work!

I hated learning colors when I was a kid. Green traffic lights look white. I’ve painted the sky purple more than once in art class.

I’m a moderate deutan — meaning I have a form of red-green color perception deficiency. You can see what it looks like here.

Enchroma sells glasses that are supposed to help a color blind person see more colors. To say I was skeptical when I first heard about it would be an understatement. Well, now I have a pair, and see for yourself my reaction.

  2. I am also color blind. I am blind in my left eye due to diabetes and a detached retina that could not be fixed. My right eye has some vision, but what vision I have is definitely color blind. I, too, see stop lights as white when it should be green, but I can see the red and yellow lights. I have not checked the Enchoma glasses out yet, but hope they will work with my distance glasses that I have to wear when I go outside. That would be great. Thanks for telling us about these glasses!
