A few years ago Anthony lost the ability to see in full color. He's not sure when it stopped, but he was diagnosed with Deuteranopia in early 2016. I would love to help him be able to see our beautiful world again.

Anthony is special. He has a huge heart and he loves his friends and family fiercely. I would have to have been totally ignorant not to notice that about him. He gives of his time and heart to everyone he cares about and even to strangers. He loves fully and completely. He believes in the goodness in everyone around him. (He totally balances out my cynicism). So, when Anthony developed Deuteranopia  in 2016, I hated that he lost a way to see the world he loves so much.

I know that it is the holidays and that things are tight for everyone. We gratefully don't have a goal that is totally unreachable. Anything that you can do to help this amazing man would be incredibly appreciated. You all know him. There is a reason that he has been in your life. He is kind and gentle and more giving than anyone I have ever met. I hate that this was taken away from him. I hate that he didn't notice it going away. He talks about it often. 

I know what this would mean to him. And I know what it would mean to me to make this happen.

Thank you so much for stopping by here. If you can, please help me to give this awesome man the gift of color again.

Thank you,

Barbra

P.S. - If you are curious about what I am talking about, see below for information on the Enchroma glasses that I want to get Anthony.

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 .
