DENVER — For people who deal with color blindness, having the option to see the world in an enhanced way can help in a major way. 

Denver's Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) is providing just that. 

The museum will now be offering EnChroma glasses to colorblind visitors, which will allow them to see their art in a clearer and more vibrant way. 

So what exactly are EnChroma glasses? 

According to EnChroma's website, the lens technology used in their glasses helps increase the contrast between the red and green color signals that help relieve the symptoms of color blindness. 

The museum is part of the EnChroma Color Accessibility Program that focuses on developing the visual experience for the colorblind community around the world.

The program also offers the option of purchasing EnChroma glasses at special rates in locations like museums, parks, libraries and schools.

In the U.S., around 7% of the male population and 0.4% of the female population can either not distinguish red from green, or see red and green differently than others, according to IRIS TECH

The MCA is located at 1485 Delgany St. in Denver.
