Color-Blind People Can Use The Enchroma CX Sunglasses To See The World
Color blindness is currently incurable for majority of people who suffer from the affliction. And while seeing the world in incomplete hues is a whole lot better than being devoid of vision, it still can cause problems in one’s everyday existence (e.g. being able to tell when the traffic lights change). A new pair of sunglasses called Enchroma CX can help with that.
Unlike regular sunglasses that reduce color definition by darkening the view, this eyewear will actually allow majority of color-blind people to see the world in full color. It does this by selectively reducing the transmission of specific wavelengths of light, resulting in stronger color signals getting sent to the brain.
The catch? It only works on brightly lit areas, like outdoors in the middle of the day, so it won’t quite save you from your red-green color blindness in most indoor situations and at night. Still, it should prove a game changer for most individuals born with the affliction.
The Enchroma CX is available in a variety of fashionable styles, as well as custom-fit for your own set of frames. Price starts at $324.95.
