Seeing in color for the first time

Colorblind Glasses Help Man Celebrate His 50th Birthday Seeing Color For The First Time

For his 50th birthday Chris Smelcer was giving a pair of Enchroma glasses, which correct color blindness.  He reared up as soon as he realized what an amazing present his family had just given him, even before putting them on.

Chris was amazed and was stunned when he saw the color of his jeans. He then stood up and walked around, and burst into full blown tears at seeing green grass, the blue sky and the colorful party balloons.

His wife said, “Chris was so overwhelmed. I don’t think he has tears left.”

I just LOVE these video, especially because my father-in-law suffers from total colorblindness and only sees shades of grey. It’s like living life inside a black and white movie.

Here’s another video of two colorblind brothers seeing color for the first time.
