Reveal the world!


Color Vision uses a process called ‘daltonization’ to shift problem colors toward the blue spectrum.  To do this, we simulate a protanopic (red weak) deficiency then subtract that image from the original.  This determines the colors that need to be adjusted.

To determine the actual color when you press and hold the screen we use the ISCC-NBS color system.  ISCC-NBS consists of 267 color ‘centroids’.  We calculate the Euclidean distance from the selected color to each of the centroids.  The one with the shortest distance wins.
