NEW COLORLITE LENSES REVEAL
THE WORLD’S FULL SPECTRUM

It’s easy to take the ability to see life in clear, vivid color for granted — after all, those of us with full color vision are unable to imagine the alternatives, but for color-deficient people, the difference can be staggering.

It’s not only about the big things. Disqualification from a large number of jobs, for example, can have a massive impact on a person’s self-worth, but it’s also about the sheer number of day-to-day tasks that are affected by color deficiency. Something as simple as not being to differentiate between two pieces of fruit, the inability to match an outfit or read a map — even never being able to truly enjoy a sunset can be extremely deflating when it happens every day for a lifetime.

At 10/10 Optics, we believe that everyone should be able to experience the true beauty that seeing in color can add to life, and now, thanks to Colorlite lenses, they can. With Colorlite, color-deficient people can now enjoy life’s simple joys, from seeing the varying hues of the flowers outside to the color of their child’s eyes.

Colorlite lenses provide those with color deficiency with the ability to do simple things like making sure they’re wearing a matching outfit or understanding a visual presentation at work. Essentially, these lenses give them the ability to view life from a whole new perspective.

Colorlite is the only FDA approved company in the U.S. to create lenses for colorblindness, and they’re only available in one location in the State of New York: right here at 10/10 Optics.
1 in 12 men and 1 in 200 women are colorblind, meaning that it’s very likely that someone you know can’t enjoy the simple pleasures of seeing life in full color.

The ability to see and clearly distinguish color has an effect on a person’s career. Many professions depend on color vision and can even exclude those with vision deficiencies. These include law enforcement, culinary work, military personnel, and more. Colorlite lenses don’t just enhance lives, they open up new opportunities for the people who wear them.

Our industry-leading diagnostic test provides some of the most accurate color vision correction diagnoses available on the market today, ensuring that we can help our patients see the greatest range of hues and shades possible. 

DURING A COLORLITE EXAM, WE PERFORM:

ISHIHARA24 PLATE COLOR TEST:

This is the Gold Standard test for red-green color deficiencies and provides critical information when used as a diagnostic tool. Its 24 plates are designed to evaluate color deficiency by asking patients to read numbers, shapes and letters that appear in different colors in a series of different color patterns.

COLORLITE TEST:

This test helps our doctor diagnose your specific color deficiency and determines the lens filters needed for correction. It asks color deficient patients to determine the direction of mixed letters and numbers in different colors that gradually become harder to define.

Additionally, we use 10 different lenses to correct patients’ color vision, providing the most accurate and vivid range of color enhancement possible.

These screenings allow us to measure patients’ protans (red vision) and deutans (green vision). We’re then able to precisely determine which combination of lenses will enable the most vivid color vision. We then fit those lenses into frames of your choice, so you can choose the perfect style of glasses to give you exceptional color vision. The results are astounding.

A NEW LIFE IN VIVID COLOR IS JUST ONE APPOINTMENT AWAY
