The gratitude and wonder that people have when they see different colors for the first time is amazing. And this man has the best reaction after wearing corrective glasses for the first time. In a video uploaded on Reddit, a man is seen in awe of everything around him after wearing the glasses. He points at a thing kept on the table and says, "This is really red?" And someone tells him, "Yeah, like a reddy orange." He then looks at colored balls hanging behind him and goes, "This is like super green. This is blue?" Someone says, "Yeah" and then he starts laughing. He then says, "It's kind of like actually mindblowing." He names one more color on the table and is completely surprised by it all, "I can't believe it, I can't believe it. It's so many colors in it. It's so real." The video ends with him looking at a painting and saying, "Look at the cow, man. This is spectacular."
Many on the platform could understand the joy he was feeling after witnessing the colors. @u/bonobro69 wrote, "What you're witnessing is maximum gratitude." @u/Skygarg said, "Refreshing to watch this.

However, many shared their own experiences and said that when they themselves used it, it didn't seem that great. @u/BikeBF21 said, "I'm colorblind. I have these glasses, and my reaction was more, oh cool. I've worn them maybe 4 times, it's cool but not 'normal' for me if that makes any sense. They're good but by that age you've learned what colors look like in your own eyes, putting these on is just like putting a filter on a movie, only that filter is how everyone else sees it." @u/dustin91 wrote, "I tried these about ten years ago, and it sorta blew out the colors. The grass seemed almost neon green, and other colors didn’t seem to change much at all. Don’t know if the tech improved, or my color blindness isn’t compatible with them, but I figured these are the colors my eyes show me, and there’s not much wrong with that after 54 years." @Julia-Louis-Drypuss said, "My boyfriend is color blind and has these glasses but never wears them because "when you look at let's say a field and the woods a lot of stuff are just different shades of green" lol." @u/lovejac93 wrote, "I’m colorblind and have a pair of en chroma glasses. These “put on glasses and cry” videos always frustrate me because the glasses don’t instantly work. You have to put them on and wait to adjust to them."
Meanwhile, the video has more than 10,500 upvotes on the platform and is captioned, "Colorblind guy seeing color accurately for the first time with corrective glasses."
