Paper Abstract

This paper describes spectacle lenses which give the wearer greater ability to sense colors at the ends of the visible spectrum (red and blue). Natural visual sensitivity to these colors is substantially less than for those at the mid-spectral range. Because of the mechanism by which human perception of color takes place, design procedures are contrary to those which would be indicated by an instinctive analysis.
