Man’s Reaction to Seeing Color for the First Time Will Warm Your Heart
Health| | By Jason Owen
Tyrone, who friends describe as a “genuinely awesome guy,” is an Australian photographer. Tyrone also happens to be color-blind. Despite his impairment, Ty has managed to be highly successful in a medium that relies heavily on the visual. One day, Ty’s friends decided that they wanted to give him something special. They wanted to see what would happen when a color-blind man sees color for the first time in his life.
In order to do this, Tyrone’s friends enlisted the help of then-startup company EnChroma. Each chipping in, the group bought Ty a pair of the specialized glasses that allow color-blind eyes to receive light correctly. Then they took him on a walk through a botanical garden.
Watch this incredible, heartwarming video of Tyrone as he witnesses vibrant color for the first time in his life.
Tyrone isn’t the only one whose life is being changed for the better with EnChroma glasses. Others who have purchased the glasses have also been recording their reactions to seeing colors for the first times in their lives.
Here’s Aaron Williams-Mele witnessing the full vibrancy of a Norfolk, Virginia sunset for the first time ever. [Warning: Williams-Mele expresses himself with a few curse words, hilariously.]
