I can’t believe I haven’t written in my blog for such a long time.. so much has happened in my life, but I just haven’t got to it.. pitiful excuse!! LOL.. but anyway.

As all my closest friends know, I’m colour blind, specifically red/green. To explain,people with deuteranomaly and protanomaly are collectively known as red-green colour blind and we generally have difficulty distinguishing between reds, greens, browns and oranges. We also commonly confuse different types of blue and purple hues.

As a child i used to hide it from everyone, believing there was something wrong with me, and didn’t want to be either teased, bully or look like a freak. I couldn’t read anything of colour on a blackboard with the exception of white and yellow. So it took serious effort to understand what was on the board often just pretending I could read and just guess!! At my age now, I just couldn’t care what people think anymore

As an adult, PowerPoint presentations pose a problem, as many utilise red/green or variances of them on blue/purple backgrounds, which makes the writing invisible to me.

To explain in simple terms, red and variance of red is just a dark colour to me blue and purple are identical, and industry wise, I can’t see the difference between red lights (EMS) and yellow lights (towing services)

Why am I bringing this up, well, there are glasses that allow us to see colour, which I’ve been looking at for some time. https://enchroma.com/ Looking at the reactions of some of the Videos I’ve seen, makes me want to get them, at the same time, petrifies me.

So I took the test to see if the glasses will work.. the result?

Based on your test result, people with moderate protanomaly usually respond very positively to EnChroma glasses — 75% of people with test results like yours experienced improved color vision.

I’ve lived my whole life like this, maybe it’ll be too overwhelming to deal with. Emotions? Scared…curious…possible excitement…nervous.. all at the same time.

Question..should I get them or not?
