Ethan Scott is colorblind. For his birthday, “someone very special” to Ethan gave him a pair of EnChroma glasses, which help colorblind people see colors more distinctly. According to EnChroma’s website, the lenses work by narrowing the light spectrum that a colorblind person sees.
The glasses aren’t a cure-all. A colorblind Forbes writer and his colorblind brother both tried them, and while they reported that colors were more vivid and distinct, both brothers still failed the colorblindness dot tests while wearing the glasses. But that doesn’t mean that, for people like Ethan, wearing the glasses isn’t an intensely emotional experience. Especially since Ethan didn’t know what they were when he put them on.
Rather touching watching his realization and response…..
