EnChroma Cx is a Color Blindness Correcting Lens

Almost all of us might have heard about Color Blindness which is the inability or decreased ability to see color, or perceive color differences, under normal lighting conditions. Color blindness affects a significant percentage of the population and there is no actual blindness but there is a deficiency of color vision. The most usual cause is a fault in the development of one or more sets of retinal cones that perceive color in light and transmit that information to the optic nerve.

As such there is no real treatment for Color Blindness and most of the optometrists can supply colored spectacle lenses or a single red-tint contact lens to wear on the non-dominant eye. Now here is a new lens which helps you cope up with Color Blindness. EnChroma Cx is a sunglass lens for color blindness correction and it is made with an extra-strength version of EnChroma’s proprietary Digital Color Boost technology.


The lens uses a mathematical formula to directly communicate with the brain’s visual system. This calculation then helps a color-blind person observe the correct ratios the brain needs for normal color vision. The red-green color blindness is a genetic defect that makes the sense of red and green crossed so they are more overlapping than for a normal user. The lens acts by removing the wavelengths of light where overlap is occurring and then amplifies the color signal sent to the brain.


Using this lens, colors can be recognized more quickly and with less confusion for the color blind people. EnChroma’s Explorer glasses are available for starting price of $379 and goes up to $439 based on the frame. There are 4 different frames to choose from based on your style requirement.
