“ChromaGlasses: Computational Glasses for Compensating Colour Blindness”, Tobias Langlotz, Jonathan Sutton, Stefanie Zollmann, Yuta Itoh, Holger Regenbrecht.
Summary: Prescription glasses are useful for correcting refractive problems of the eye. Using a transparent display, special glasses—called “ChromaGlasses”—were developed to compensate for colour blindness by switching the colour of an image to one which the colour blind viewer is able to see more easily. Colour blind individuals wearing the special glasses were able to pass colour blindness tests.
