HI THERE!

My boyfriend and I are a couple of grad students, who met almost a year ago on a dating app. Life has never been the same since, and that's just the way we like it!

He has moderate-profound deuteranopia, meaning the cones in his eyes that perceive green light don't work as well as they should. This prevents him from seeing certain things, such as red flowers blooming in green trees, or that he bought a pink shirt and green pants instead of a white shirt and brown pants.

What started as pondering what to get him for our first anniversary turned into the idea of doing a modified Five Senses gift. For those who haven't heard of this, usually you give the person five small gifts that appeal to each of the five senses, such as scented candles for Smell, or a new CD for Hearing. However, I thought it would be cool if instead, I could give him larger gifts, and allow him to choose which sense he wanted on five special occasions throughout the year.

Enter Enchroma, the colorblindness-correcting glasses. I cannot think of a more perfect gift for the sense of Sight. He has brought so much joy and beauty into my life and those around us. Please help me return the favor by donating.

Any amount helps. I would like to purchase the Receptor glasses, as they are reasonably-priced and will fit over his existing glasses. All proceeds under the goal of $375 will go to Fundrazr/WePay/PayPal fees, and the purchase of the glasses. Any proceeds over $375 will go to upgrading the Enchroma glasses with prescription lenses (~$150.) If donations somehow exceed $525, the remaining proceeds will go to help with the cost of the other Five Senses gifts (~$250.) Any donations exceeding this will be donated to other individuals who are in need of EnChroma glasses.

Thank you for reading!

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 .
