Colorblind Man Sees Purple For The First Time… And It Brought Me To Tears.
When things come naturally to us, it's easy to take them for granted. We might look at the green grass or a clear blue sky and appreciate it, but not fully grasp how beautiful it really is.
Ethan Scott is colorblind, so his ability to see color is a lot more muted than the rest of us.In his words, "it's not that I see things in black and white, it's that I see things in a way that are a little bit more dull than usual."
Unbeknownst to Ethan, a company called EnChroma has developed glasses to correct color blindness, which means that he has his chance to see true colors for the first time. His friend gives him a pair and, without telling Ethan what they are, encourages him to put them on. His reaction when he sees purple is totally priceless.
