Enchroma, a company founded by Andrew Schmeder and Don McPherson. In 2010 Don, a Doctor of Glass Science was developing laser safety glasses for surgeons. He discovered that his new type of lenses had a coincidental positive effect on the vision of people with color blindness. Together with Andrew, they seek to develop their newfound discovery and with the help from an NIH SBIR grant, the duo spent nearly ten years perfecting a stylish consumer-grade version of this new lens technology.
So now people like William, who are suffering from color blindness, with the help of Enchroma glasses can now see color for the first time. Watch his tearful reaction after trying out Enchroma glasses and experience the world in vibrant color.
