f you're one of the more than 10 million Americans who are color blind, the EnChroma Cx-D or Cx-PT sunglasses ($599) could change your life. Creator Don McPherson stumbled upon the concept when a color-blind friend borrowed laser-operator safety goggles one day to play ultimate Frisbee. McPherson discovered that the goggles allowed his friend to distinguish colors because the lenses isolated color wavelengths, keeping reds and greens from blurring into brown.
