EnChroma, creators of the EnChroma eyewear for color blindness, introduces the EnChroma Lx Series for Low Vision and Age-Related Eye Conditions, a new product line to address a rapidly growing category of visual challenges worldwide.c.
Features: EnChroma Lx Series is uniquely designed to support functional vision for people with vision impairments by reducing the disabling effects of glare, improving contrast and enhancing color vision over multiple lighting conditions. The Lx Series will be available through selected EnChroma authorized retailers worldwide.
The Lx Series Trial Kit includes four lenses: a Category 1 lens (80 percent transmission) for low-light and nighttime use, Category 2 and 3 lenses (12 percent and 36 percent transmission, respectively) for combined glare reduction and color vision enhancement and an ultra-dark Category 4 lens (3 percent transmission) for extreme glare management.
“Until now, the low vision options available to patients have been limited,” says Mark Mattison-Shupnick, master optician and vice president of business development for EnChroma. “EnChroma’s new offering for low vision features a unique spectral filter that reduces the intensity of white light while transmitting colors up to two times brighter than an average lens. A patient using the new lens will experience superior glare reduction and comfort, as well as enhanced color and contrast, which can aid mobility and safety.”
To develop the lenses, EnChroma worked with low vision optometrists and patients with rare but serious eye conditions such as retinitis pigmentosa. One of EnChroma’s pre-release testers is Blair Wong, ABOM, BS, M. Ed., department chair, opticianry department, Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology, adjunct associate professor, New England College of Optometry and a licensed optician with late stage retinitis pigmentosa. According to Wong, “EnChroma augments what little vision I have, that I didn’t think I had. I am able to regain pieces of information I couldn’t perceive before. That enables me to be less reliant on tactile and echo perception.”
Patients with conditions such as cataracts, corneal damage, optic neuropathy, macular degeneration, glaucoma and other visual disorders associated with glare sensitivity and reduced color vision may also benefit from adopting the new lens.
Availability: EnChroma lenses are made with Trivex. The lenses are available in nonprescription and Rx forms including single vision, progressive and blended bifocal designs. Eyecare professionals interested in learning more about the EnChroma Lx Lens Series or in becoming an EnChroma authorized retailer should contact [email protected] or call (510) 771-8914.
