The Life-Changing Glasses for the Color Blind

EnChroma’s Vice President of Products, Dr. Don McPherson, is an optical expert, who’d invented specialized glasses for doctors performing laser surgery.

McPherson started wearing the glasses himself, and when a color-blind friend borrowed them, the rest is history. (….)
