Achieve Full Colour Vision with EnChroma

Individuals living with colour blindness may believe that full, rich, colour vision is beyond their reach, but it isn’t. EnChroma glasses can help colour blind individuals see the world in full colour. Our Vidal street location is proud to offer EnChroma so that we can better serve our patients with colour blindness.

What is Colour Blindness?

Our eyes rely on two types of specialized cells for vision: rods and cones. Our eyes detect colour using the cone cells, and each cone cell is programmed to detect either red, green, or blue light and relay that information to our brain.

Colour blindness (also referred to as colour deficiency) occurs in individuals who either have cones that respond to more than one colour or have fewer functional cones then they should. Both of these problems cause our brains to interpret two separate colours as being the same colour, causing visual confusion.

How Does EnChroma Work?

EnChroma lenses correct for colour blindness using a unique type of technology called multi-notch filtering. Multi-notch filtering works by blocking out the light wavelengths that cause visual confusion in individuals who have cones that respond to more than one type of light (typically related to red and green colour deficiencies). This helps the brain to differentiate between the two different colours by tricking the cones into responding to the two different types of light differently instead of the same.

Can EnChroma Help Me?

EnChroma lenses are designed to reduce or even eliminate red-green colour blindness, and it seems to be working. 80% of all individuals with red-green colour blindness who try EnChroma lenses report that the specially designed glasses are able to improve their colour perception abilities.

Many individuals notice an immediate improvement in their colour vision. However, some individuals find that their vision changes more subtly, and may need to wait a week or two before they begin to experience noticeable benefits.

If you think you may benefit from EnChroma we encourage you to take their free colour blindness test. If your results suggest that you might benefit from EnChroma lenses we encourage you to book an appointment with our Vidal Street location today so that you can discuss EnChroma lenses with one of our optometrists.

EnChroma is not a cure for colour blindness, only a tool. EnChroma lenses cannot cure colour blindness and will not help wearers to pass standardized vision tests. There are many different types of colour deficiencies, but EnChroma is only designed to work for individuals with red-green deficiency.

For more information about EnChroma, and to help determine if you might benefit from EnChroma, please speak with one of our Vidal Street team members.
