Co-inventors Andrew Schmeder and Don McPherson formed Enchroma, Inc. in 2010. Andrew, a UC Berkeley-trained mathematician, helped Don, who held a PhD in glass science, crack the code behind his serendipitous discovery: glasses that enhanced color vision for people with color blindness. With help from an NIH SBIR grant, the duo spent nearly ten years perfecting a stylish consumer-grade version of this new lens technology that revealed color as it is meant to be seen—pure, vibrant, and true to life. Since the very start, Enchroma has been using the latest understandings in color perception neuroscience to help countless people not just see color, but see and understand the world.
