This red/green enhancement comes at the expense of yellow/blue perception, so it's not without its issues (apparently it renders yellow traffic lights invisible), but it's an interesting bit of progress in an area where I never expected any.

As far as I can tell, this technology has been in use by a significant portion of the population since I started driving 20 years ago.

There are a few companies out there doing lenses to correct colorblindness. One even claims to correct dyslexia (it's actually more for dyslexia than color blindness but can do both.)

I spent about 25 minutes with that company back in August, quizzing them pretty extensively on their claims. Anecdotally they can back it up, but I'd love to actually talk to some of their users.

Although my colorblindness has made me feel uncomfortable at times, I have found a nice perk to it. Apparently because of the way the color and light comes into the eye, red/green (mine isn't severe) colorblindess allows me to haev better "night vision". I can almost always see a hell of a lot more and a hell of a lot better in the dark than my peers. I had a conversation with an army buddy who said it helped him in Iraq. He said he could often see in the dark better than his peers. I always thought I could see well in the dark, but didn't know it was linked to my colorblindness. I just figured everyone else sucked at seeing in the dark.
