Colorblind Boy Sees With New Glasses

May 20th, 2017

Imagine what your world would be like if you had to live without color. You couldn’t see the beauty in the bright green leaves on the trees, the golden yellow petals of sunflowers, or the clear blue sky.

Living in a world with a monotone pallet isn’t ideal, but it is a reality for those who are color blind. However, those who can afford modern technology can receive the gift of living in a colorful world.

Xavier McCoury received this gift as an early birthday present earlier this year. The 10-year-old, who can only see in black, white and gray, was surprised with the mystery box he was given and excitedly opened it.

As he opens the box, his Aunt Celena tells him that the “special” glasses will allow him to see color. He smiles as he takes them out of the box.

And when he put them on he grins widely, but quickly starts to weeps at the beauty of the new world before him. His family got emotional too and started to cry happy tears at the sheer joy Xavier was experiencing.

“It’s impossible to describe how much this moment meant to him and the whole of our family,” his mother Melissa said, according to Caters Clips.

All Xavier could manage to say was, “Thank you. Thank you so much.”

“What can you see honey,” one of his family members ask.

“Color,” he says through his tears.

The wonder on his face as he looks at how different his surroundings are is just beautiful. You can watch the video of Xavier’s reaction to seeing color for the first time in the video below.
