FOR COLOR BLINDNESS ENHANCEMENT
Bell Booth Sirkka is very excited to be the first location in Northern Ontario (and fourth location in Canada) to offer the exciting new Enchroma lens technology. The only specialty eyewear available to help alleviate red–green colour vision deficiency. Allowing countless people to finally discriminate between two of the most important primary colours.
What is Color Blindness?
Colour blindness, or colour vision deficiency (CVD), is a condition where a person is unable to distinguish certain shades of colour. The most common colour confusion occurs between reds and greens, with CVD individuals often thinking they are the same colour.
Who is Affected?
Colour vision deficiency (CVD) affects millions of people worldwide. Men are most commonly affected with 1 in 12 having some form of CVD while the prevalence in women is 1 in 200. Most people who suffer from CVD are not blind to colour, but have a reduced ability to see them.
What Do Affected People See?
People with red–green CVD see the world differently. Their red and green photo sensing cells (cones) in the retina have more overlap than normal making them unable to see certain colours. Reds and greens often look the same and appear to be muddy brown in colour.
Enchroma lenses use a unique patent-pending technology called ‘multi notch’ filtering, cutting our specific wavelengths of light. The lenses attempt to separate the overlapping red and green cone sensitivities, helping improve vision for people who have difficulty seeing the difference between reds and greens.
