Hey! I'm campaigning for my best friend who is color blind. He is 23, from Chicago, and loves art. I want to surprise him at a gallery with the glasses. This brilliant man deserves to see color and I think we can help change his life!

Hey! My name is Michelle! I am 23 and a recent graduate of the university of Kentucky. I work in Louisville for the time being and have aspirations to go to medical school to become a pediatric endocrinologist ❤️❤️

Why should you care about any of this? 

I hope that everyone has had the pleasure of making a best friend in their life time and this is for my best friend. His name is Stefan and I don't know if you could tell from all the hints but he's colorblind. We met in undergrad in this awful bio evolution class and have been friends ever since. I have been tracking encroma since I found out this existed and I've never been able to afford them :(

I'm a horrible gift giver but I know this would really change his life. I am quickly learning there are so many things in this world I have no control over so I thought, 'why not have less control and ask strangers for help'. So here I am, asking for some help so my friend can see color for the first time. 

This is something he didn't even know he could wish for or ask for when he was a kid and now these magical glasses exist! 

If you are still reading... thank you! And if you feel any connection or hope in this story please help my best friend see color for the first time!! Any and all donations help! Please!

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 .
