I tried O2Amp glasses to correct for my colorblindness. They’re very effective at enabling me to notice some shades of red that I’ve found hard to see. In particular, two species of wildflowers (Indian Paintbrush and Cardinal Larkspur) look bright orange through the glasses, whereas without the glasses my vision usually fills in their color by guessing it’s similar to the surrounding colors unless I look very close.
But this comes at the cost of having green look much duller. The net effect causes vegetation to be less scenic.
The glasses are supposed to have some benefits for observing emotions via better recognition of blood concentration and oxygenation near the skin. But this effect seems too small to help me.
O2Amp is a small step toward enhanced sensory processing that is likely to become valuable someday, but for now it seems mainly valuable for a few special medical uses.
