So, apparently, these glasses, originally intended as protective wear for doctors can help people who are colorblind to see "normally".
To quote the article:
“The glasses work by selectively removing certain wavelengths between the red and green cones that allow them to be in essence pushed apart again,” said Don McPherson, EnChroma’s VP of products.
As a colorblind person, this is kind of weird to me. On the one hand, if this works for more types of colorblindness, this could help me and countless others to see "normally".
On the other hand... I'm not severely colorblind and I'm totally used to seeing the world through my own slightly defective eyes, I wonder how much I really want to have my colorblindness fixed.
Then again... they're just glasses, so why not? Would make color mixing easier, I imagine.
