Enchroma glasses were created to help correct red-green color blindness. These glasses use Enchroma’s “multinotch” method to cut out sharp wavelengths and use specialized lenses that allow for certain colors to be filtered out. The glasses are large enough to fit over most prescription glasses and are intended to be used outdoors.
