If anyone deserves to have these, it would be Joel. He's enriched our lives in so many ways and is always there for people in need. I figured I'd give this a
Shot. Any amount helps. This crowdfunding goes directly to Joel's enchromas. Thanks everyone!

I was out walking with Joel yesterday, admiring the beauty of the leaves changing. I pointed out how bright the red leaves that stood alone on a branch on a tree that the rest of the leaves were still green. He asked "where?" They were right in front of us and the stark contrast was incredible. He simply couldn't see it. It really motivated me to save up for those enchroma glasses for him. With him being color blind, he is unable to see the difference between the oranges reds and greens. The only color he was able to pick apart, was yellow. They all kind of blend together for him. I wanted to cry. He has been missing out on SO MUCH. The look on his face when he gets to see the colors will be worth the $400. I'm just hoping I can manage to get them before the leaves all turn brown.

WHAT IS ENCHROMA?

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. For more information please read the FAQs , learn about the Enchroma technology and story , or contact customer support .
