Color-Blind Man Celebrates His 50th Birthday In Color

A 50-year-old man who’s been color blind his entire life and has seen everything in black and white, says he now understands why his pants are called blue jeans after an amazing gift from his family.

Chris Smelcer recently celebrated his birthday and was given a pair of Enchroma glasses, which correct color blindness. As soon as he put them on, he reacted as if he had just entered a new world and was immediately brought to tears.

Chris was amazed and was stunned when he saw the color of his jeans. He then stood up and walked around to see green grass, the blue sky and the colorful party balloons.

His wife said, “Chris was so overwhelmed. I don’t think he has tears left.”
