WHAT IS COLOUR BLINDNESS?

Colour is used in everyday life, whether it’s to interpret a street light, identify certain foods, or simply enjoy the beauty of nature.

Colour blindness is inherited genetically and is the inability to distinguish between colours. Those who are colour blind do see colour, however, in a different range than compared to those who have normal colour vision. This can lead to a confusion of colours often misidentifying them and causing a person to miss out on important details of an object or completely not see them at all.1

There is no cure or treatment for colour blindness. However, there are tools that can be used to enhance colours for better identification.

Perception Eyecare is an authorized retailer of Enchroma. Enchroma colour blind glasses are unique in that they give those suffering from colour blindness the option to see a broader spectrum of colours.1



If you or a family member are having difficulty distinguishing between colours or may think you have a colour vision deficiency, you can confirm this with the Enchroma Colour Blind Test.
