Are You Color Blind?

Experience EnChroma Glasses for Color Blindness!

If you’re red-green color blind, come try EnChroma glasses for color blindness and experience the vibrant colors at the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art.  You can borrow and enjoy EnChroma glasses during your visit as part of our mission of accessibility and inclusivity for all of our members and patrons. You will be asked to leave your drivers license in exchange for checking out the glasses.

EnChroma glasses enable people with red-green color blindness to see an expanded range of clear, vibrant, distinct color and enjoy enhanced detail and depth perception. Color blindness affects one in 12 men (8%) and one in 200 women (.5%) – an estimated 13 million in the US and 350 million worldwide.

Take EnChroma’s online color vision test to learn your type and level of color blindness by clicking here. Then, bring color blind family and friends to borrow the glasses.

Causes and Challenges of Color Blindness
While people with normal color vision see over one million shades of color, those with color vision deficiency only see about 10% those hues and shades. As a result, their world view is dull and less vibrant, with some colors appearing muddled, muted, washed out or indistinguishable. To them, purple looks blue, red seems brown, gray appears pink, and green and yellow can look similar.

The color blind can struggle to see the red in a flower, the variation of colors in a rainbow, a painting, the true hair or eye color of a loved one, red and green stoplights and more. In viewing artwork, the color blind may struggle to see some colors. In school, the condition can cause frustration and challenges in learning. Here are some examples of how the color blind see:

How EnChroma Glasses Work
EnChroma’s patented lenses are engineered with special optical filters that enable the color blind to see a broader range of colors more clearly, vibrantly and distinctly so they can experience colorful art, the beauty of nature, overcome everyday challenges and better understand and appreciate colors.

Importantly, EnChroma glasses are not a cure or correction for color blindness, they work for approximately eight out of 10 people with red-green color blindness, do not provide full color vision and results and reaction times vary.

Some tips:

1. Take Your Time…The effect of the glasses may be instant or could take several minutes or longer the first time you try them as your eyes and brain
adjust. (Try to resist flipping the glasses up and down).

2. Explore…your surroundings. Notice color more vividly, saturated and clearly, and experience a broader range of hues.

3. Observe…purple instead of blue, red instead of brown, green and not gray, and other colors. Are colors crisper, sharper, more distinct and easier to tell

4. Enjoy…better depth and detail perception in a flower, painting, nature and more.

5. Attention Rx Wearers…Keep your Rx eyeglasses on. Request the “fit over” (Altavista) frame, which easily fits over Rx eyeglasses. Only put the “fit
over” frame over eyeglasses, not the “regular” frames.

The CRMA is proud to enable access to more of life’s colorful experiences for those with color vision deficiency
