    colour blind glasses or solutions

    I had a client contact me looking for help for a relative with colour blindness. She would like to buy glasses to help. Is there soneone in Ontario that has in store options? Looking for recommendations for anyone who specializes in this.

    Thanks,

    Yes sir, they are limiting the amount of offices carrying the product, I brought them in around 2 years ago. They are very easy to work with.

    One of my close friend is color blind, Enchroma glasses work for It or Not and have you tried these glasses and what the results.

    If they go online, they can take the test and get the information on the type of color blindness and what works best. Find an office that sells them, they should have a "loaner fit over" for them to try, I have seen it take up to 30 to 45 minutes of wear before the colors start making sense to them, some are instant.

    Hi all, to latch onto this recent thread which coincides with a current patient of mine (we're in Australia) who has strong protan. Enchroma is beyond his budget.

    My understanding is that Enchroma and any colorblind (spelt colour blind for us down under) lenses selectively pass/filter wavelengths to boost/reduce those deficient colours. In our case, it's red and green.

    Would anyone have experience with using Oakley Prizm tech as an alternative?
