There Will Be Tears: Colorblind Man Sees His Children's Eyes In True Color For The First Time

May 14, 2015

Note: Skip to around 1:00 unless you're really into unboxing videos.

This is a video of Katherine Empey's brother Petey getting a pair of EnChroma colorblindness corrective glasses (previously) and experiencing the world and his children's eyes in true color for the first time. It was very sweet to watch. Now if they could just invent a pair of glasses that could help me read sheet music that would be awesome, because I'm pretty sure my band is planning a mutiny. Whatever guys, Tasteful Nudes is practically nothing without me.

Keep going for the beautiful video.

Thanks to OLIVIA, who yelled her whole email at me, and I am okay with that. All caps I can read.

    So now I want to know if he sees a white and gold dress, or a black and blue dress. And how would he know what real colors are? To him, he may know blue as fuchsia, or everlasting gobstopper.

    These don't help color deficient people see colors they have never seen. they shift the wavelength of color that they are looking at making it look different to them. The same way as if normal color vision people were to wear rose color lenses, all the colors would suddenly look different.

    I'm red-green colorblind, I'd get these glasses immediately if they weren't $400+

    I really came for unboxing. Quit at 1:00.

    Those are some irritating children.

  • Ollie Williams

    All children are irritating. They are like small, drunk people who gradually get sober over the course of 18 years.

  • GeneralDisorder

    I don't think 18 is when sobriety happens. For me it didn't happen until about 26 (after I had a child already and realized I was ill-equipped for adulthood and needed to fix that problem).

  • FearlessFarris

    Serious question: did you just come up with that? Because, as a father of two, I think that may be the most spot-on observation of children I've ever heard. Kudos to you if you're the original author, but if not, I'd be interested to learn where you heard it.

  • Ollie Williams

    My wife and I have been saying this for several years, though who knows if we heard it somewhere else or not. In the grand scheme of things, sure, I'll take credit for coming up with it.

  • FearlessFarris

    Well done, sir.

  • iofo61

    I guess he's just really relieved that his kids are the color he was expecting.

  • Ollie Williams

    My god. The feels! The feels! It hurts!
