Some disabilities are clearly impediments to someone living their best life. Others are more subtle, but still restrict a person’s ability to find joy on a daily basis. Can you imagine, for instance, never being able to fully appreciate a sunset or the color of autumn leaves?
Colorblindness used to be just a fact of life: some people had it and others didn’t, and neither really understood the world the other lived in. Now, however, through some kind of optical magic I don’t begin to understand, it’s finally possible for more people to experience the entire color spectrum.
This is really no small thing. A lot of our everyday pleasure comes from our senses; someone who’s unable to discern the colors in a painting, or even figure out which clothes match, is in much the same position as a person who cannot enjoy music.
Of course, this rarely bothers them, since there’s no way for them to understand what they’re missing. When they’re suddenly able to see normally, though, the experience most of us take for granted seems like a bona fide miracle.
This specific model is intended to address red-green color blindness; others may be helpful for different types.
Since colorblindness is a complex range of conditions, there’s no guarantee that any of them will work for you. Fortunately, these glasses are normally sold under either a 30-day or 60-day money back policy, so you can easily return them if you don’t see the results you hoped for.
As you would expect at this price, they are very high-quality sunglasses, comfortable to wear and with lenses that are anti-glare, scratch resistant and block 100% of harmful UV light. You can choose between multiple styles to suit your individual look. Their main drawback is that they have to be tinted in order to work: it’s not always possible to use them indoors.
There’s no way around this, however, and considering that their results are close to magical in other ways, we’ll just have to forgive this shortcoming.
