    What are some alternatives/options for colour blind px?

    Hi all,

    We have a new patient who presented and is a strong protan.

    After a bit of digging, I could see that Enchroma is the main supplier (US though and we are in Australia). It seems their strong protan lenses are similar in tech as Oakley's Prizm lenses (sapphire polarised or deep sea).

    I've dug into their patents and compared (way beyond my technical knowledge) and it seems that the underlying technology of selectively filtering out wavelengths are similar.

    Anyone here have experience outside of Enchroma, or can vouch for an alternative like the Oakley Prizm range?

    TIA

    Consider Chemestrie CB lenses

    and Vino optics works well for protans, in my experience.
