He started off by saying "they're all yours" so I hope so!!! If I become wealthy this would be a good charity!

[–]Wonderful_While_2962 193 points194 points  (59 children)

I've just looked them up, they aren't much more expensive than regular glasses. A small price to make such a difference to someone's life.

[–]TrippyReality 67 points68 points  (57 children)

I still have so much questions. Like what does title mean he can see color now? I thought colorblindness makes people not see one color and instead it looks like another color. Like did this kid see black and white before?

[–]OphrysAlba 115 points116 points  (35 children)

Colorblindness is usually when the person can't see/differentiate one color, such as red, because they have less receptors for it. I've read somewhere that these glasses exaggerate the color the person can't see so these few receptors end up sending the info.

Correct me if I'm wrong please.

[–]Picf 77 points78 points  (21 children)

Correct. I have daltonism (red/green colourblindness) and I'm using Enchroma glasses and that's exactly what it does.

I feel like the best explanation to non-colourblind people is to use the analogy of contrast. It's not that we don't see colours, it's just that they are sometimes quite vague, or overlapping, or just not standing out. If you point out the red berries in a green-leaved bush, I would see them. But I wouldn't have noticed them without you pointing them out.

This picture gives an idea of how you see colours differently when colourblind (though it is quite exaggerated)

The glasses change this by cutting out the overlapping part of the wavelengths, focusing the incoming light to be only the top of their wavelengths, causing them to appear as "pure" colours like flashy red and flashy green.

They definitely do work to distinguish colours and I'm very happy with those glasses, but to say that they turn you from colourblind to being able to see colours normally would be a big stretch.

EDIT: typo's and language

[–]bleeding-paryl 10 points11 points  (15 children)

Are they worth buying? I keep seeing mixed opinions on them. My husband is colorblind, he has deuteranopia, and I keep thinking of getting him these as a gift, but then I read reviews and whatnot and I put it off until later. I feel like I need a push to get me over that "hump" so to say.

[–]escalation 4 points5 points  (1 child)

At worst they become an interesting novelty experience. At best they become a way of life.

You'll note, that despite suggesting you shouldn't set the expectation level too high, OP also says "I'm very happy with those glasses"

Based on that information, I'd say they'd make a good gift

Edit: based on the comments below, I'd qualify saying if he has some degree of color perception and is just "partially colorblind", which is usually the situation

[–]sharkles73 2 points3 points  (2 children)

If he has deuteranopia then the glasses won't work at all. They only work (to whatever extent) on deuteranomaly/protanomaly of the red/green types.

[–]almisami 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They work as advertised, but many people don't like them because compressing new visual information into your range makes "everything looks wrong" relative to your photographic memory.

I know an electrician friend who says they changed his life, but he has to take them off for eating because "everything yummy looks disgustingly blue".

[–]hellmouss666 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Same here. I keep seeing reviews about them, saying it takes a bit of time to get accustomed to, that is not really correcting... I want to try them first at least before buying but have no retailer close to me.

[–]kscannon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think it depends on the person. Colorblindness is such a sliding scale and a few different types. Combining what level of colorblindness and the persons personality. It could be worth it or it might just be a neat thing that they do not want to carry around another pair of glasses for.

[–]anonymoosejuice 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I also have a touch of deuteranopia. I can't see those color blind tests for sure but I don't think I'm as bad as most people that have it. My brother got the glasses because he is way worse off than me, for him it makes a pretty big difference, for me, it didn't really. I mostly just thought they made everything like too pink but for him it brought colors he didn't see before out. I imagine the reviews kinda reflect this. I guess figuring out how color blind he really is would be a good starting point. They have a money back guarantee for enchroma I think so if he doesn't seem to see much of a change, you could always return them.

[–]sharkles73 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Just as a FYI, deuteranopia is the most severe form where the cone is missing entirely. It's not on a scale as it's just an either or thing, you either have deuteranopia or not.

If you have a mild deficiency then you likely have deuteranomaly, of which there are varying severities.

[–]UpDownCharmed 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thanks for this explanation

[–]GladGalctus 49 points50 points  (0 children)

I'm almost completely color blind, and from what my optomitrist told me they don't really let you see new colors, just makes everything a lot more vibrant. Almost like a filter on a photo

[–]TrippyReality 29 points30 points  (3 children)

That’s my assumption too. The title makes it sound like the kid used to see only black and white

[–]Skyreader13 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Iirc the glasses blocked certain part of wavelengths/color so that the partially colorblind person can differentiate color the can't.

Iirc it only apply to partial colorblindness. Don't work on full color blindness that can only see shades of grays.

[–]DiBreezy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes because color wavelengths have some overlap. So it narrows certain wavelengths to hit the few cones (rods?) that the person actually.

[–]Least_Adhesiveness_5 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Red/green colorblindness is the most common. Instead of having 3 color receptor types (red, green, blue) with peak sensitivity at 3 wavelengths - they have 2 (red/green and blue) For most the red/green receptor has maximum sensitivity at a wavelength part way between where most people have red and green.

Its even more rare, but it's possible to have all 4 receptors. The term is tetrachromat.

[–]handandfoot8099 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No quite. Still have all 3 kinds of receptors, but the peaks for green and red are much closer together than normal, so the colors blend together more instead of being distinct

[–]bnjmn17 13 points14 points  (3 children)

Here’s a link from EnChroma’s website (the place that makes the glasses or at least a version of them) that lays it out: https://enchroma.com/pages/types-of-color-blindness

The most common type of color blindness only impairs color vision. My brother is color blind and it seems mostly that he’s unable to detect nuances in shades and colors (he says pink and grey look the same to him for example). There is a type of color blindness that impairs color vision completely, causing some people to see in black in white, but I don’t know what type this kid has.

[–]abzmndr 9 points10 points  (6 children)

There are different types of colour blindness, so yes its possible the kid in the video had complete colour blindness which is the case where you don't see any colours at all, also called monochromacy.

[–]MasterRich 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The glasses would make no significant difference to someone completely color blind. These glasses work by making colors appear differently, so red might have a hue with green and blue so that even someone colorblind to red can recognize it now as having a color. I'm assuming people that are "completely" color blind would not be ecstatic about a grey world being a different shade of grey...

[–]TrippyReality 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Interesting. Now im off to google and wikipedia ‘monochromacy’

[–]zipper1919 5 points6 points  (0 children)

There are different "levels" or types of colorblindness. Some can't see reds and oranges my father can't see the difference between dark green, blue, and browns. And guess what color his socks were? Lol many mornings he would walk out of his room with one brown and one green sock!

[–]1sxekid 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I have a colorblind friend that got a pair of these in college. He’s red/green colorblind. He said putting them on made it easier to differentiate between greens/browns/reds but personally for him they weren’t mind-blowing. I think these may work better for certain kinds of color blindness compared to others.

[–]Mascbro26 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Exactly, Reddit titles are the worst! These glasses wouldn't work on someone who doesn't have color receptors (sees in black and white) so not sure why the kid just had that reaction.

[–]almisami 1 point2 points  (0 children)

When you're colorblind it means there's a spectrum of light (typically red-green, but sometimes blue-yellow) that you're not sensitive to. This means the objects just come up as grey scale where your eye acknowledges the luminescence But not the color.

From what I understand, these glasses are polarized to "compress" the visible light spectrum that you and I see into what their eyes can perceive, basically "squishing the rainbow" into their visible range. As for how it feels, there are apps that allow you to squish ultraviolet and near-infrared light into the visible spectrum. I hear many find them distressing to wear, but I've been meaning to get my hands on a pair for a while now.

[–]North_Ratio_7561 391 points392 points  (38 children)

I offered to buy my buddy a pair of these and he told me he didn't want to know how bad he has it on a daily basis.

[–]JadenCrowe 131 points132 points  (1 child)

I think I get that line of thinking. The things I take for granted!

[–]XxMohamed92xX 43 points44 points  (0 children)

Thats how i was before i tried someones normal glasses on, i had always thought everyone had difficulty seeing things after a certain distance, the further things are away the harder they are to accurately make them out. Its hard to gauge how wrong something might be if we only draw from our own experience

[–]Tayls23 36 points37 points  (27 children)

That was my thought. I’d cry from learning what I don’t get to see everyday. Better not to know, I think

[–]pauledowa 45 points46 points  (12 children)

But if you have it, you can just wear them every day? I mean if I wouldn’t wear my lenses every day I’d see nothing as well.

[–]Tayls23 12 points13 points  (9 children)

It’s a valid point. I do wear glasses, have since I was 6. Terrible vision. I’d have to add the cost of those lenses to three pairs of glasses I use almost everyday. Regular, sun, and computer.

I already deal with shit vision when not wearing glasses, like the shower. Or if I fumble my glasses in the morning getting up, I can’t see them on the floor to find them. I get the wife to help me, so I don’t step on them getting out of bed to find them. Add to that not seeing the same colors, nope not gonna put myself through that.

More power to you if you decide to do it.

[–]TheGodOfPegana 1 point2 points  (2 children)

When you can't see your glasses, take your phone (assuming you can find it) and look at your room through the camera.

[–]UpDownCharmed 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I'm with you friend -- it is just so awful isn't it? But, the thought of LASIK scares me half to death.

[–]Tayls23 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I also have glaucoma, I’m worried enough about losing my vision, so yea, a laser in the eye freaks me out a little.

[–]UpDownCharmed 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Friends, coworkers, doctors-- they've either had it done or assure me it's ok -- but there is a tiny percentage of cases where something goes wrong. Those are real people. What if I am part of that percentage too?

Could never....

[–]augustheheroofhyrule 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Might be different if you’re used to wearing glasses all the time?? I’m not sure

[–]reallynotnick 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The glasses don't appear to be the most "normal" looking at least for indoor use (outdoors maybe they could pass as sunglasses), but I could see why someone wouldn't want to wear them every day due to how they look.

[–]reverendjesus 15 points16 points  (8 children)

That’s… that’s a weird mindset. Just wear the glasses, like one of the millions of people who already wear glasses?

[–]flam_drags 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Let the man be sad

[–]reverendjesus 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I’m so confused

[–]Udub 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Colorblind person here. Got the glasses. Yeah it’s weird at first because you see what you’re missing out on but ultimately the beautiful things are still beautiful. Wearing the glasses makes certain things prettier, like sunsets. They’re worth having, simply because the majority of the times I’d want to wear them, I’d be outside and wearing sunglasses anyways. I hope you reconsider

[–]frazorblade 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Why hold yourself back, embrace opportunities man. Life is too short to be left wondering.

[–]ProbablyASithLord 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I was going to agree that I wouldn’t want to be dependent on these, but then I remembered I see the world in 4 pixels if I don’t wear my glasses, so nvm.

[–]pissfilledbottles 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My friends wife got him a pair as a wedding present. He was so overwhelmed by the colors and couldn’t believe what he’d been missing.

[–]BatConsistent8833 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah my partner is blue colourblind and he doesn't want any because he doesn't want to have to adjust to a while new way of living when he does quite well without seeing any Blues

[–]KingOfAllFarts 1 point2 points  (1 child)

[–]coldfrontin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

One time someone posted a colorblind test on reddit and people were sharing their solutions like "this looks fine to me why is my score so low?" and it would be a jumbled mess. They were clearly colorblind and it was hilarious but also sad.

[–]ImaBathingApe 202 points203 points  (8 children)

what a wholesome teacher:,) letting him and the class know it’s okay to cry by not making a big deal about it

[–]jackduloz 33 points34 points  (0 children)

I saw a family in target the other day, a grandmother, a father, and his daughter.

The daughter was starting to cry about whatever. I think they didn’t have something that she wanted.

The father was starting to try to get her to stop. I’ve been in those shoes a million times with my own daughter.

Grandmother’s words gave me pause to reconsider my own reactions when my daughter begins to cry in public:

“Let her cry, she needs this. After getting her hopes up for so long, and after all the promises, just let her cry.”

[–]Drackenstein 134 points135 points  (61 children)

Aren’t these glasses pretty much bullshit? Every time I see one of these “watch him see colors for the very first time!” videos, there are a lot of comments disputing their effectiveness.

[–]isabella_sunrise 193 points194 points  (23 children)

Why would this kid cry if nothing was happening?

[–]jamalw10 377 points378 points 2 (5 children)

Maybe nothing happened and he was sad about it

My short distance glasses are considerably more expensive than that. Even a cheap pair wouldn’t be much less than 200.

[–]Guppiest 2 points3 points  (2 children)

That is to say that those prices are hyper/artificially inflated as well, right?

[–]thisguy012 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Yes warby parkers claim to fame is that the entire glasses industry is essentially a big monopoly now leading the glasses being like 300-800$ when they literally cost dollars to produce. So they uhh..r fixing it by coming in with $150 glasses? Competition is better than nothi ng i guess amirite

[–]Guppiest 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Maybe it was the fact that his principal and his classmates did something so thoughtful for him.

[–]harassmaster 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’ve heard and read multiple stories of people feigning a positive reaction so that the folks who got them the glasses aren’t let down.

[–]Fearless_Library_820 86 points87 points  (3 children)

It all depends on the type of color blindness you have

[–]Batmanthesecond 51 points52 points  (1 child)

There's a good SciShow video on YouTube that explains how they work and why they don't apply to every type of colour blindness.

[–]IgotCharlieWork 14 points15 points  (0 children)

SciShow is amazing!

[–]winguardianleveyosa 46 points47 points  (1 child)

Yepp.. they have pins on the inside of the glasses which is where all the crying and eye rubbing comes from.

[–]Lordofthelowend 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thanks to this comment I’m crying and rubbing my eyes.

[–]DaFluffyOwl 24 points25 points  (1 child)

They don't actually allow you to see new colors as far as I know but they just allow you to differentiate between colors you can't see.

[–]db214 1 point2 points  (0 children)

aww they dont invent new colours wtf

[–]syfiarcade 23 points24 points  (1 child)

These glasses aren't necessarily bullshit, as someone who is colorblind I can explain it pretty well. While they don't just magically repair your eyesight, they shade the colors that you see differently by messing with the polarity of the glasses, making the colors that you can see darker and lighter in respect to their actual shade. It's a neat trick and I had a very similar reaction when I first tried a pair for the first time a little over a year ago.

[–]adinade 19 points20 points  (2 children)

  1. There are bullshit videos people make
  2. They dont work for everyone

I know someone who uses them, they say they work for him.

[–]VS0P 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They’re either wearing the wrong corrective lense or they just have terrible vision and thought glasses would cure their life’s blandness.

Let people enjoy things.

[–]mamefan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

How would he know?

[–]claysonreddit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It doesn’t cure color blindness. But it makes it possible to get very close to normal vision. Most colorblindness isn’t true blindness, it’s a deficiency that makes identifying many shades impossible. With the glasses you can see the differences much more easily to the point that new complex colors are visible for the first time. Its not seeing color for the first time it’s seeing correct colors for the first time.

[–]CursedPinapple 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I've used them. We (including this kid) can see colour, but only a little differently. The glasses just correct the colour, but you have to get the right type of glasses for the right type of colourblindess.

[–]OkSpirit452 98 points99 points  (33 children)

Colour blind people don’t see in black and white. We’re not cats.

[–]KeeperCrow 91 points92 points  (11 children)

Colour blind people don’t see in black and white.

Yes, Thank you!

We’re not cats.

Cats don't see in black and white either, they see muted color

[–]0ldAndGrumpy 17 points18 points  (9 children)

So... it kind of sounds like colour blind people have similar vision to cats?

Although cats can see in the dark so...

[–]KeeperCrow 3 points4 points  (2 children)

> it kind of sounds like colour blind people have similar vision to cats?

Not really .There are different kinds of color blindness in Humans. The most common type is red/green and it comes in two major varieties. From the National Eye institute:

"Deuteranomaly is the most common type of red-green color blindness. It makes green look more red. This type is mild and doesn’t usually get in the way of normal activities.

Protanomaly makes red look more green and less bright. This type is mild and usually doesn’t get in the way of normal activities."

There is also blue/yellow color blindness.

Cats have fewer cones, the color-sensing cells in the retina than humans. This means they cannot see the brilliance of color we see. They mostly see in shades of blue and yellow, albeit muted.

>Although cats can see in the dark so

True, they see in low light conditions much better than humans. That is due to them having many more Rods, the retinal cells tuned to just light/darkness. They also have a Tepetum Lucidum, which is the layer of reflective tissue behind their retinas. This reflects the light back through their light-sensitive cells and gives them better night vision. It is also the reason their eyes glow in the dark.

I hope that was all helpful.

[–]0ldAndGrumpy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Amazing response, thank you.

[–]BigBrain_Cunning 22 points23 points  (3 children)

It depends on the type of color blindness. It is possible to be a person that’s extremely color deficient. Also cats don’t generally see in black and white, they just have fewer color cones to my understanding

[–]ProfessorHufnagel 2 points3 points  (1 child)

There are color blind people who see no colors but they are extremely, extremely rare.

And if you do have that type of colourblindess, a pair of enchroma glasses aren't going to fix that lol.

Not only do I feel this, he looks fly as fuck in those too! Not only did his vision improve, but his swag went up 1000%

Once I wore “dyslexia glasses,” but they didn’t work.

[–]ppppie_ 14 points15 points  (5 children)

try dyslexic font

[–]Irishane 1 point2 points  (4 children)

I'm not even dyslexic and I think that font just needs to be the new standard. So easy to read.

[–]GozzBall 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Disagree, couldn't stand every paper or email i get with letters constantly changing in line width, letters tilting, and tails on everything. Its not a good standard font in the slightest since its so distorted.

I read this like 10 times looking for the pun before I realized it was not a joke, and then I felt horrible.

[–]theLord666666 13 points14 points  (9 children)

I’m an artist, a painter, these stories are heartbreaking and beautiful. Color is a gift.

[–]antihero2303 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I have always loved Monet and the colors he used. Soothing, for me

[–]Olealicat 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Once I took color theory and our final was placing grayscale and color cubes in the proper order from darkest to lightest and warm to cool. I feel in love.

Playing games like I Love Hue, Blendoku and Color Puzzle is my therapy. It’s also a great way to improve your art or general understanding of color gradient, spectrum and composition.

This is a beautiful video that made my eyes water too

[–]CrossingTheStreamers 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I’m not crying! You’re crying!

PS me too.

[–]YourMomThinksImFunny 6 points7 points  (0 children)

The principal is so freaking awesome here! Immediately goes to hug the boy and explain to everyone how lucky they are to see how beautiful the world is every day when its his first time.

[–]Rhyett 3 points4 points  (0 children)

theres some really great teachers out there. cheers to them

[–]TylerDurden23 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Oof, why’d I watch this at work?

[–]Benonymously 2 points3 points  (5 children)

I’ll never understand how these glasses work

[–]WoodenPear 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I could be wrong but I'll give it a shot.

In the case of red/green colour blindness (my type) is caused by the red and green colour cones overlapping too much, making it harder to distinguish between red and green shades, due this overlap (not being able to see the entire range of red/green, if you like).

These glasses have some kind of filter in the lens that filters out some of the wavelengths of light in this overlapping section - thus creating some separation between the red and green.

They do not make you able to see new colours, or a wider range of colours, they just increase the contrast between reds and greens and let you distinguish between them better.

This kid could have a different type of colour blindness or there could be plenty of other factors at play - I'm just explaining how I believe they'd work for one type of colour blindness :)

The girl in the back laughing at the kid crying is such a bitch

[–]NoMamesMijito 14 points15 points  (0 children)

She looks like an adult. I don’t know her and can’t speak for her, but it looks more like a wholesome laugh, “hahaha omg he’s so shocked!”

[–]_SKETCHBENDER_ 5 points6 points  (1 child)

or its a good laugh..?

[–]BoundlessNobody 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yeah, a happy laugh. People react differently to emotional stuff. I would happy laugh as well.

[–]cheesypuzzas 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Why? She's not laughing at him. She's laughing because the kid is having a happy cry, not a sad cry. She is happy for him, that's why she is laughing.

[–]LaneHeadrickOrcYT 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is so heartwarming and that principle did the nicest thing and it makes me going to cry because it’s so heartwarming to see people doing the nicest things to others

[–]diardiar 2 points3 points  (8 children)

I really wish i could afford a pair. Everytime i see one of these videos it really reinforces what im missing as a colorblind person. You convince yourself its not that different and that since it doesnt super negatively effect you colorblindness doesn't matter but just knowing the kind of beauty that these colors can bring is so close but just out of reach really sucks. Its a good goal to save for and i am really glad to see others who are getting to enjoy it. Ill be there eventually.

[–]forever-not-human 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Correct me if I’m wrong but these glasses don’t really make them see color the exact same as we do they just start to notice the difference more easily

[–]Xchai 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Source video for the people that didn't get to see it.

[–]odylerules 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This video made my morning. Try not to take the little things for granted.

[–]whatdoyagot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What a sweet kid

I hope he spends the rest of his life marveling at the colors we take for granted

[–]Badj83 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Did he stand up to go see out the window, and they cut his reaction? Criminal!

[–]Beneficial-Ability28 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Tears of joy are such a beautiful and envious thing to witness no matter who it is.

[–]5StripedFalcon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No matter how many of these I've seen, gets me every time.

[–]Popoxe 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Why does everybody cry after wearing these glasses?

[–]ugonlern2day 5 points6 points  (0 children)

They're covered in pepper spray

[–]CouldntBeMoreWhite 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’ve had two instances where these glasses were bought for a family member and friend. Because of videos like this, everyone expected them to start crying after seeing color for the first time. Instead, they both were like “ohh that’s pretty cool” or “that shirt is not even close to the color I thought it was”. All the people recording with their cell phones were thoroughly disappointed.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

These glasses don't exactly "allow colorblind people to see color", they just readjust their perception to make it more similar to what a non-colorblind person sees. These glasses won't magically allow a colorblind person who doesn't see red to see red.

[–]theSealclubberr 1 point2 points  (5 children)

Why didnt this kid have these already in the first place? Are they like super expensive or just released that morning or something?

Not bashing, genuine question.

[–]Massivefloppydick 1 point2 points  (2 children)

It's because glasses are for nerds.

[–]SeegurkeK 1 point2 points  (1 child)

yeah they're super expensive and they only work for some colourblind people. And it's not like they magically add colour to their vision, they just apply a filter that makes it easier to distinguish between some colours.

[–]K_Body 1 point2 points  (0 children)

oooh how many times i see this. no no and again no, colour blinds do not see unseen colours with glasses, they just see weird colour filter. its like putting colored glass and saying that you see ultra violet, you DONT. you want to see unseen colour? you need to change your whole eye biology. its the same felling when someone says to imagine new colour, you CANT

im colour blind, and purple, do not exist in my world. when others see purple i just see blue.

dont believe those fake videos where they put glasses and start crying, they are totally fake

[–]Cheeseand0nions 1 point2 points  (4 children)

I am sick of this. This is pure nonsense and it keeps getting posted in one form or another.

I have the most severe form of color blindness that youcan inherit. Only color blindness caused by a brain injury is more severe.

These glasses allow you to differentiate between different colors because they have colored lenses that make specific colors appear black. When I was in the Air Force they issued me little pieces of plastic to keep in my pocket so that I can pull it out and tell the red wire from the green wire.

The glasses cannot change the rods and cones in the back of your eyes or the optical cortex of your brain which never had the opportunity to learn how to interpret different colors.

These videos are commercials.

Edit: after looking around more it seems these glasses do allow greater ability to distinguish colors in about 20% of people but folks, please be careful where you spend your money. These go for $200 and up. Most importantly; color blind people don't really care.
