By Staff Report, posted 9 months ago

EnChroma, a company known for its color-correcting glasses for colorblind individuals, is partnering with Fayetteville Community Lions Club 31N to give its glasses to colorblind veterans and active duty personnel at Fort Bragg. 

The gift of 50 sets of EnChroma glasses is intended to honor service members and veterans for Veterans Day. 

“Veterans and military service members who are color blind cannot see the red stripes in the very flag they protect,” said Erik Ritchie, CEO of EnChroma. “We are proud to donate our glasses to the JFK Special Warfare Museum and show our appreciation to veterans.”

Additionally, EnChroma has gifted a set of EnChroma glasses to JFK Special Warfare Museum at Fort Bragg so that its colorblind visitors can fully experience its exhibits. This donation makes the museum the first military museum in the world to accommodate guests with color vision deficiencies  

“Lions North Carolina has been working closely with EnChroma for some time now to introduce color blindness testing in schools in our state and to get color blind schoolchildren these glasses,” said Mayra McCloud, Fayetteville Community Lions Club 31N, Chief of Visual Information for USAJFKSWCS and North Carolina State Chair of the Committee for Technology for the Visually Impaired. “Many Lions served in the military, so we take particular pride in being able to help our fellow veterans who are color blind access the colorful world around them, and overcome everyday obstacles, by giving them EnChroma glasses.”
