Will my child be tested in school for Color Deficiency?

Currently in the U.S., most states do not have any type of state-wide program to test children for color vision deficiency. Unfortunately, Florida is one state that currently does not. We are hoping through advocacy to change that. 

The 11 states that do have testing include: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Louisiana, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and Wyoming.

Where do you get your glasses from? 

We have partnered with EnChroma, who produce color-filtered lenses to make the world a more vibrant and colorful place for those with color vision deficiency.
