Help Ian see color!

My husband, Ian is red-green colorblind. We discovered this while arguing over the color of the walls in Friends (he said it was blue, but I said it was purple). He has described seeing the world in sepia tone. I often forget he’s colorblind and inadvertently make him feel bad for seeing the wrong color.

This year, Ian and I are celebrating our 10 year anniversary of being together by going to Disneyland where he proposed 5 years ago. I want him to experience Disneyland in all its glory in full color for this first time. There’s so much I want him to experience. He’s never seen World of Color. He didn’t get to see our wedding colors. He can’t see half of the artwork that I do. These glasses will help with that. It’s too much of a luxury to be able to afford it right now.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Ideally, I’d like to get him a pair for indoors and another for outdoors so he can see colors no matter what environment he’s in. He deserves to see the world in color at least once. 


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 .
