We are all different, which is why different types of glasses are available for use while visiting BREC:
Standard glasses, suitable for adults
Glasses for children
Glasses for adults that can be worn on top of prescription glasses
Glasses can be checked out at the BREC box office, as you arrive for your event, with a government issued photo identification.
How do EnChroma glasses work?
EnChroma glasses use special optical filters that help the colour blind see an expanded range of colour and to see it more clearly, vibrantly and distinctly.
EnChroma’s lens technology increases contrast between the red and green colour signals, alleviating symptoms of colour blindness for a richer experience of the world.
