让色盲患者获得正常视觉体验的神奇眼镜
The 'magic' glasses that could let the colour blind see normally

【原滋原味双语阅读】

The $280 glasses, developed by a Berkeley firm, were discovered by accident, and allow sufferers to see colours which were previously muddled and muted.
这款由伯克利(Berkeley)公司开发的眼镜售价280美元,发明过程纯属偶然,能让色盲患者看清原本浑浊和黯哑的世界。

A radical new range of sunglasses claims to be able to let the colour blind see far more like a person with perfect vision.
一款全新系列太阳镜据称能让色盲患者看到的和视力良好的人一样。

The glasses were discovered by accident, and allow sufferers to see colours where they were previously muddled and muted.
这款眼镜的发明纯属偶然,能让色盲患者看清原本混乱不清的颜色。


 

The glasses have now gone on sale for the first time.
这款眼镜目前首次面市。

'Colour blindness is often considered a mild disability, but studies show that over 65% of the 300 million people with colour vision deficiency (CVD) say they feel handicapped by it,' said Tony Dykes, CEO of EnChroma, the firm behind the glasses.
“色盲一般被认为是一种不打紧的残疾。但研究表明,三亿色觉缺陷者(CVD)中,有超过65%的人认为自己存在残疾。”发明这款眼镜的EnChroma公司首席执行官托尼·戴克斯(Tony Dykes)说。

'We're proud to help colour blind people overcome some of the obstacles colour deficiency presents, and to help them enjoy the full spectrum of life.'
“能帮助色盲患者克服一些色觉缺失产生的障碍,并帮助他们全方位地享受生活,我们感到非常自豪。”他说。

They were invented by Dr. Don McPherson under a government sponsored research grant.
唐·麦弗逊博士(Don McPherson)用政府资助的科研补助金发明了这款眼镜。

McPherson discovered the effect by accident: while designing eye-protection glasses for laser-surgeons, when he gave the special lens to a color blind friend.
一次偶然的机会让麦弗逊发现了这种镜片的作用:在为激光外科医生设计护眼眼镜时,当时他把这种特殊的镜片给了一个色盲的朋友。

The lenses enabled him to see colors where they were previously muddled and muted, giving McPherson the inspiration to start a new direction of research.
镜片让他看清了原本混乱不清的颜色,也为麦弗逊开始新的研究方向带来了灵感。

After a long journey through research grants, prototypes and product studies, the current form of consumer-friendly glasses were designed.
经过漫长的研究基金的筹集,以及对原型和产品的研究,麦弗逊设计了这种消费者友好型的眼镜形式。

'Color deficient persons do not know what they are missing visually, they are only aware that they have certain career, activity and task limitations,' said Dr. Gary Louie, Doctor of Optometry (OD) of Family Vision Care Optometrics in Union City, California.
“色觉缺失的人不知道自己的视觉缺陷是什么,他们只知道自己在特定行业、活动和工作上有一定的限制。”加利福尼亚州联合市家庭视力保健验光师加里·路易(Gary Louie)博士说。

'EnChroma lenses are much more than sunglasses or cosmetic accessories.
“EnChroma公司设计的镜片远不仅是一般的太阳镜或化妆品配饰。”

'They are a unique treatment option that has the potential to improve the life experience of patients in a way they have never experienced before.'
“这是一种独特的疗法,使病人以从未体验过的生活方式提高生活体验。”


 

The firm also says wearing could improve a child's vision.
EnChroma公司还表示,佩戴这种眼镜能提高儿童的视力。

'The neural plasticity of the young adult brain means that information gleaned while wearing EnChroma Cx sunglasses could carry over to enrich a child's other learning and life experiences,' it said.
“年轻成人的神经可塑性意味着信息收集的同时,能佩戴EnChroma Cx眼镜,丰富儿童的其他学习和生活经验。”

One in 12 men and one in 233 females have some form of colour vision deficiency, of which approximately 80% can be helped, the firm claims.
EnChroma公司称,每12位男性和每233位女性中就存在某种形式的色盲,他们当中大约有80%的人可得到帮助。

Wearers say the changes can make a big difference to their lives.
佩戴者表示,这些改变能给他们的生活带来很大不同。
