Special optical filters in EnChroma glasses help colourblind people perceive a wider range of colours and to see colours more vividly, clearly and distinctly. A study by the University of California, Davis, and INSERM, the French National Institute for Health and Medical Research, confirmed the effectiveness of EnChroma glasses. A separate recent study in the scientific publication Eye-Nature also highlights the benefits of the glasses for people with colour vision deficiencies.
