Grandfather Sees Color for the First Time

A Florida family pooled their money to buy their grandfather the gift of colors for his birthday. Noah Stafford was born colorblind and has spent the last 66 years living in a black, white and grey world.

The family pooled their money to get Noah EnChroma glasses—special glasses designed to correct colorblindness. The catch is the price. These glasses start at $250 and go up to $600.

His reaction was nothing short of adorable. Watch it here.
