Aaron Williams-Mele had a life-changing experience when he saw the world in full color for the very first time.

Williams-Mele is colorblind, and his parents gave him a pair of EnChroma Color for the Colorblind glasses for his birthday. The frames allow those who are visually impaired to experience hues and tones they have never been able to see before.

He decided to try on his gift while the sun was setting over the water at Whitehurst Beach in Norfolk, Virginia. (We advise you to grab a Kleenex before watching!)

Williams-Mele is overcome with emotion as he looks around the beautiful landscape in awe, saying, “It’s weird… I’m shaking.” When asked if it was worth it, he says, “Yea… I like this… I like this a lot.”
