3 Types of Colour Blindness

First of all, our colour blind lens guide can show you the 3 types of colour blindness that benefit from our glasses:

DEUTERANOMALY/DEUTERANOPIA or otherwise more commonly known as red-green colour blindness. This type of colour blindness is the most common and can affect a broad spectrum of colours including reds, greens, browns, oranges, blues, purples, pinks, and yellows.

PROTANOMALY/PROTANOPIA is a less common sub-type of red-green colour blindness and mostly affects reds more than greens.

TRITANOMALY/TRITANOPIA is a very rare type of colour blindness and affects only 1 in every 100 people that suffer from colour blindness. Tritan colour deficiency affects the blue-yellow spectrum.

The 5 Lenses

colour blind glasses

LENS A (universal indoor & outdoor)

This lens is universal, meaning it is equipped with the necessary technology for deutan and protan colour blindness (red-green blindness). People with mild / moderate colour blindness typically show the best results from this lens.

Wayfarer classic lens B

LENS B (universal, indoor & outdoor)

Our most popular and effective lens for most users. Similar to lens A, but has a darker tint to the lens.
