Hi my name is Erickson, I’m a Graphic Designer / Web Developer and I am colorblind. Enchroma glasses could help me improve my vision and life overall and to accomplish that I would like your help so I can see true colors for the first time!

Hi my name is Erickson Ortiz, I’m a Graphic Designer and Web Developer and I am colorblind. I didn’t realize I had a red/green deficiency until 2 years ago and I thought it wasn’t the big deal, I’ve been colorblind all my life but It’s been really hard because of my job and my passion that is to paint/draw portraits.

Since I was a kid I had to rely on color pencils with name printed names printed on them so I could tell the difference between each color, nowadays Photoshop is my main tool I use everyday at work. Sadly, all my life I thought I was seeing the same colors anyone can see.

I thought I could see like any normal person, but after knowing that I am colorblind, confusion is a feeling that I have everyday. I have been struggling all this time trying to tell the difference between colors and I was so excited when a friend showed me the Enchroma video ad, but a Graphic Designer here in Orlando is a career that does not pay much honestly.

Prescription Enchroma glasses are US$499 plus taxes, and if you could help me spread this message so I can hopefully see all the colors you can see I will be forever grateful! I can also draw a portrait of anyone who can help me raise enough so I don’t have to pay the full price for the glasses :] Here you can see some of my personal work http://efcee.deviantart.com/

Thank you in advance for reading this post.

Learn a little bit more about Enchroma Glasses:

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 .
