Watch The Moment Boy Born Colorblind Sees Colors for the First Time


By Meredith Ganzman

This is the moment 13-year-old Aiden Stecher is seeing the world anew for the first time.

Aiden was born colorblind. But that all has changed since his mom, Caitlin Besse, bought him EnChroma glasses.

Besse says her son has spent his life wearing mismatched clothes, and he hopes his colorful new outlook on life helps with his autism and anxiety.

It took her about two years to save up for the glasses, which Aiden had no idea even existed. So when he put the glasses on for the first time his world really did explode, his mom says.

Aiden says what he’s already excited to see with his new glasses- video games and a sunset.
