SEJONG, South Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RMK Inc., established as a venture company for the colorblind, launched “Dalton,” a sunglass designed for color blindness correction.

Launched to relieve the inconvenience of the colorblind, Dalton sunglasses block the harmful UV rays and short blue wavelength (410 nm and less) by 100%, and lower the transmittance of green wavelength (520-540 nm) down to 3% to provide the color correction effect. In addition, the lens itself consists of seven layers, ensuring the visual comfort of the users.
Dalton of RMK, the colorblindness correction glasses, was developed by a researcher for his colorblind child. Minki Ryu, CEO of RMK and, the developer of Dalton, said, “I made this product hoping that everyone can enjoy seeing a wide range of colors clearly.”
