    Big Smile Lens Tint for red green color deficiency.

    We just dispensed a pair of glasses for someone with red-green color deficiency. The glasses were a surprise present from his parents. He actually came back in after he picked them up. He was positively glowing and wanted to thank the people involved in researching and ordering his glasses. He was seeing a wider range of colors, and colors he had not understood before were making sense to him. It just made my day to see glasses make suck a positive difference in someone's life. We used the BPI Monchrome 600MM tint. This forum was one of the places that talked about this particular forum. So thank you. And our patient thanks you as well.

    Yay! I have yet to use that tint but look forward to it. Since it is a little pricey, I was planning on making multiple plano pairs to have on hand when I do finally decide to make room in the dye pot. That way I can let people test over their glasses or even have a plano set made to a frame of their choosing.

    Are they a sunglass density? Just wondering if you have any experience with trying the Monochrome 600 at different levels of darkness.
    Have I told you today how much I hate poly?

    They are pretty dark, this is the first pair I have ever seen. Our lab did it and it turned out great. I have not seen different intensities but that would be a good experiment. My lab said it would be $50 but I only was charged normal tint price. I think they made a mistake. I hope it goes well for you.

    I would be curious to know what the deficiency of this patient was/is. Red or green, monocular or binocular, deficiency rating before and during eyeglass wear.

    So many questions.

    Got any science behind this?

    Unfortunately, in my experience, the color deficient are not interested in the science. I can barely get one to take a thorough test let alone stay in contact after.

    The efficiency is red/green. Unfortunatley this was not diagnosed by us, but just in the patients health and history. I do not have a ny hard science. I have read however that the problem could be in processing rather than rod/cone issue. ANd changing the input helps. That is all I know at this point.
