Lectures & Lasers: Colorblindness with EnChroma

Get lit with lasers! Want to impress your friends with your expansive knowledge of science and culture? Looking for a new date night activity? Just want to kick back and watch a laser show?

Don McPherson, a Doctor of Glass Science, was responsible for the original “ah-ha” moment that led to the formation of EnChroma. His new invention - laser safety glasses for surgeons - had a coincidental positive effect on the vision of people with color blindness. This discovery was the basis for an SBIR grant from the US Small Business Administration, which launched the research critical to the formation of EnChroma. In addition to his contributions to EnChroma, Don has served as President of Bay Glass Research, Inc., Vice President of Research and Development at Vetrazzo, Inc., and Founder & CEO Counter Production, LLC. Don is the recipient of 5 NEI, NIH, and National Cancer Institute grants and has authored 6 patents and 14 scientific papers.
