Debuking EnChroma® glasses

Debunked the effectiveness of glasses for color blind people:

This study carried out by the UGR shows that a color blind person using theEnChroma®glasses will not perceive new colors, but rather the will see the same colors in a different way.

"This makes possible for some individuals using these glasses to distinguish some colors, but to the detriment of others which will be now confused. Even though a color filter as that used by the EnChroma® glasses may change the appearance of colors, it will never make color vision more similar to a normal observer's vision," the authors state.

I picked up some knock-off versions of the EnChroma glasses which I suspect don't function the same way.

It indeed made red colors stand out more vividly. It also made the difference between yellow and green more apparent.

The only problem is, it made the difference more apparent by blocking the green entirely. Driving was very difficult because the monochromatic green LED traffic lights went completely black. No blue either. Basically it blocked everything above a yellow frequency.
