I think Enchroma glasses will make a big difference for me while in graduate school. I'm asking for your support to help me purchase them.

Any amount helps. This crowdfunding campaign pays directly to me. Please help to spread the word.

WHAT IS ENCHROMA?

I have been color blind my whole life and cannot see reds, greens, oranges or any color in between, I see these colors as muted greys and browns. Yellow and blue are my favorite colors because I can see them. Recently I was granted admisssion to graduate school in applied geography studying geomorphology and the climate. Maps and other activities associated with this major make it difficult for me to perceive what a maps story is trying to tell me. This semester I am in a soils class which I profile layers of soil but my inability to see color in the reds has me struggling to accurately see these profiles correctly. I am usually not one of those people who ask for much and I consider myself more of a giver. This would change my world and life experiences for years to come. I appreciate you reading my story and hope you consider donating to my cause. Thank You! Over 300 million people worldwide are affected by red-green color vision deficiency, also called color blindness. Enchroma has created glasses which enhance color vision without the compromise of color accuracy. 

Enchroma glasses are an optical assistive device; they are not a cure for color blindness. Results vary depending on the type and extent of color vision deficiency per individual. The glasses are estimated to be effective for 4 out of 5 cases (80%) of red-green color vision deficiency – prospective users are encouraged to take our online color vision test to assess the likelihood of efficacy. Enchroma does not endorse use of the glasses to pass occupational screening tests such as the Ishihara test.
