At Vision Expo East EnChroma, Inc. announced the expansion of its line of indoor lenses for color blindness with the addition of EnChroma® Clip-On lenses, available online and through its network of Authorized EnChroma Retailers worldwide. EnChroma® also introduced two new stylish frames to its Indoor Collection, which now boasts four frames and two clip-on options for adults and two for kids. Invented in 2010, EnChroma lenses enable the one in 12 men, and 1 in 200 women, who are red-green color blind to see a broader range of clear, vibrant color.
“This innovative product means a person with color vision deficiency can conveniently adapt their prescription eyeglasses by attaching EnChroma Clip-On lenses to enjoy color whenever they’re indoors or in low light situations,” said Andrew Schmeder, CEO and Co-founder of EnChroma. “EnChroma Clip-Ons illustrate our commitment to listening to people with color blindness and responding with products that are convenient and fit their lifestyle, while enabling them to experience life more colorfully and fully.”
EnChroma® Clip-On Cx 1 Indoor and Cx1 Indoor DT lenses are available in rectangular and rounded square shapes. They will be available online and through their 200 Authorized EnChroma Retailers in the US, Canada and Europe.
The two new EnChroma frames are tuned for indoor needs. The new matte black EnChroma Hopkins frame offers superior metal craftsmanship in a versatile design. Made of surgical steel, it is easily adjustable and its silicone nose pads allow for a comfortable fit (59-15-140mm temple length). The new EnChroma Grant frame is a stylish, medium-sized acetate frame in a matte tortoise finish (54-15-140mm temple length).
“The expansion of EnChroma frame and indoor lens choices enhances the ability of eyecare professionals to work with each color vision deficient patient to identify the optimal fit, style and lens to meet their needs,” said Mark Mattison-Shupnick, Vice President of Business Development for EnChroma. “Based on the strong interest shown by vision professionals in serving their patients with color blindness with a science-based product like EnChroma, we look forward to continuing to expand our network of retail partners in the US at Vision Expo East and helping them create additional revenue streams.”
