The yellow and red on the stoplights look exactly the same.
Apparently Autumn is a really pretty season.
I have to ask my roommate when the ground beef is finished browning.

These EnChroma glasses will help me see the world the way it should be.

I went through 14 years of my life without even knowing I was colorblind. But then one day in my 9th grade Biology course, my teacher made each of us take an online colorblind test (similar to the one on enchroma.com). I failed it with a 20%. Apparently he thought I was lying, because it counted for a quiz grade.

One day I was eating with my friends in the University of West Georgia dining hall, and I decided to have some delicious mashed potatoes and gravy. However, due to my colorblindness, I did not realize that the "gravy" next to the mashed potatoes was actually BBQ sauce. Worst mashed potatoes and gravy ever.

Colorblindness isn't really a disability to me,  I already find the world God made beautiful. The crazy thing is, everything I have every seen is more colorful than I can even imagine. Apparently rainbows have more than two colors, but I already think they are amazing.

A beautiful double rainbow sighted as I was on a church service retreatI've always wondered what the Spring time looks like to a normal person, and I'd really like to experience that with these EnChroma glasses. If there is anything you could give to my campaign, I would greatly appreciate it. If you have any "colorblind" questions for me, feel free to reach out at jahnke@uga.edu.

Thanks for your time and contribution. 


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 .
