Company poised for a big year with new product introductions.
Buoyed by public attention as a result of the “What color is this dress?” sensation, scientists at EnChroma are preparing for a big year for their patented lenses that help correct color-blindness. The company will roll out indoor versions of the glasses, a pediatric model and an online test that can help people analyze colorblindness at home. “To further bolster the effect of the glasses,” reports Smithsonian, a mathematician member of the research team has created “a sophisticated model of color vision in the human eye that incorporates 10,000 natural and man-made colors.” He then designed “a filter for the eyewear that optimizes the way a user views this wide spectrum of hues.”
