Maybe you’ve already seen it on TV: the new, miracle eyeglasses that can restore a colorblind person’s ability to discern colors. Enchroma is the company that created the technology that allows red/green colorblind people to see what they’ve been missing. A friend of mine and all her siblings pooled their funds to buy them for their father. “At $349, the glasses are little pricey,” comments Abby Leon. “My dad was overwhelmed when he put them on. He really didn’t know what he’d been missing!” So, what is color blindness, or Color Vision Deficiency (CVD)? People with this condition are unable to see colors under normal light, and have a hard time telling one color from another.
