I’m so happy to have seen this today." u/Religiously-Numb commented, "Great, now I’m bawling all over my coffee and have to put my phone down to clean up…this was awesome!"

Colorblind glasses obviously make one realize the beauty and wonder that is there in the world. In another story about a man who tried colorblind glasses for the first time, he is seen looking in awe at everything around him. He points at something 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. Makes me feel grateful for all the things I have and don't care about." Another user, u/DarkandSparkly, wished knowing of these glasses when his dad was alive, "Man, I so wish they’d had these glasses readily available when my dad was alive and says, "It would have been so cool to see him experience this!" u/TNT_613 wrote, "We take so much for granted. I'm so happy for this man!" Perhaps Jude will also be at awe at the new colours he discovers in his daily life. Take a look at this emotional video of a little boy's gratitude toward his parents.
