Subscribe to WIBX 950 on

”Everyday I see different colors.”

Derek Clark, Broadway Utica’s executive director, was born with color blindness. A combination of technology and research have led to a brand of patent pending eye glasses that alleviate red-green color blindness through optical filtering, according to, the maker of the glasses Clark recently received as a gift.

Clark joined Keeler in the Morning on WIBX to talk how he sees things with a little ‘pop’ when he wears the glasses. He wore them for the first time on-camera, for a piece with WUTR Eyewitness News.

”It was pretty cool,” Clark said.

There are numerous internet videos of people being moved to tears when putting on the Enchroma glasses for the first time. Clark didn’t that first time, but said he did later when he saw the segment air on television.

On wearing them on his ride home for the first time:

”The sky was blue and the sun was shining. And I was able to see so many colors in the trees and in the hills in the Adirondacks I had never seen before. There were so many blues, and browns and reds and the greens and yellows, I’d never seen that,” Clark said, adding that he never liked the color green, until he actually saw it.
