Contact lenses for red-green weakness

Four million people suffer from a colour deficiency, such as being able to recognise lights at traffic lights, distinguish flowers or tell football teams apart by their shirt colours.

Five per cent of Germans suffer from congenital dyslexia and its symptoms: letters dance across a sheet of paper, words sink into the background, lines of text flicker so quickly that you can barely read them.

The secret of the adapted contact lenses is their colour filters, which are individually adapted to each patient's eye. The individual adaptation and the mode of action differ for people with colour vision defects and dyslexics. It is assumed that the colour filters stimulate the cones and rods in the eye of people with colour vision deficiency. This helps them to distinguish colours better and increase the number of perceived colours and shades from around 2,000 to around 6,000. For dyslexics, the filters are designed to help compensate for visual processing disorders.

ChromaGen contact lenses (as the special dimensionally stable contact lenses are called) work by the colour filters incorporated into the contact lens stimulating the cones and rods in the eye and compensating for missing colour pigments. In this way, the contact lenses help to distinguish colours better. ChromaGen contact lenses can achieve up to three times greater perception of colour tones in the eye.

A thorough examination of the eyes is necessary in order to determine
