A 28-year-old Canadian inventor has developed a specialized set of contact lenses that can correct color blindness.
Gabrielle Masone first became inspired to design the lenses based on her own experience with vision problems as a child.
After studying chemistry in college, Masone launched Colorsmith Labs Inc. in 2017 as a means of developing the corrective lenses.
Now, after working in partnership with scientists from St. Mary’s University in Halifax, she has finished a prototype that will soon be tested on humans.
She hopes that the lenses will save people the annoyance of having to wear bulky tinted glasses.
“I mean, not everyone wants to walk around in tinted glasses, you know?” she told CTV Atlantic with a laugh. “We all love Bono [U2’s lead singer] but no one wants to look like him every day.”
Masone and her team at St. Mary’s are now looking for investors to finance the lens’s manufacturing.
