What is Color Vision Deficiency?
Color vision deficiency, also known as color blindness, is a common vision issue that causes a person to be unable to distinguish certain colors. Contrary to popular belief, most color blind people can still see some colors, although they have difficulty telling others apart.
The most common form of color blindness is a red-green deficiency, where people have a difficult time differentiating between red and green hues. Blue-yellow deficiency occurs less often, and total color blindness, where an individual can only see in shades of gray, is the rarest.
Color blindness is more likely to occur in men than in women, with about 1 in 12 men and 1 in 200 women being affected worldwide.
What Causes Color Blindness?
Our eyes contain light-sensitive photoreceptors called cones that help recognize color. Cones are sensitive to either blue, red, or green light. Pigments within the cones help you distinguish between color. However, if your cones lack pigment, you will be color deficient.
Color blindness is most often inherited, but besides genetic causes, it can also be the result of complications from disease, aging, certain medications, or injury.
Am I Color Blind?
Color blindness isn’t black and white — literally or figuratively! It isn’t always easy to know if you’re color deficient, especially because a color deficiency can come in many different types and severity levels. Without a frame of reference, color blindness can go unnoticed.
If you have color blindness, the EnChroma Color Blind Test can tell you if your color vision deficiency is mild, moderate, or strong — in less than 2 minutes. The test can not only confirm if you’re color blind but may also be able to determine what type and the severity of color blindness you have. It can also tell you which EnChroma glasses will improve your vision!
EnChroma Glasses for Color Blindness
Until recently, color-deficient people didn’t have options that would clearly distinguish colors. However, thanks to revolutionary EnChroma eyewear, life-changing color correction is possible by simply wearing these specialty lenses.
How Do EnChroma Glasses Work?
EnChroma eyewear uses the latest in color perception neuroscience and lens innovation to help color blind people see true color for the very first time. The glasses increase the contrast between colors by filtering light so that those with a color deficiency can have a richer, more colorful experience.
EnChroma glasses are designed to improve the vision for those with anomalous trichromacy, which is an impairment, but not full loss, of color vision. This category of vision deficiency makes up about 4 out of 5 cases of color blindness.
