Colorblind man finally sees sunset in full color

- The emotional moment a colorblind man sees a sunset for the first time in full color is going viral. The moment is so emotional for Aaron Williams-Mele, he’s moved to tears.

Aaron writes on YouTube that his parents gave him a pair of Enchroma Color for the Colorblind glasses for his birthday, and that he decided to try them out while the sun was setting at Whitehurst Beach in Norfolk, Va. "Needless to say, it was a pretty emotional experience," he continues. You can watch the video below.

According to, the lenses use a special mathematical formula to boost color vision. These lenses work directly with the brain's vision system to help users see different color variations.

You can watch Aaron's emotional reaction below. (Warning, video contains graphic language.)


Aaron is almost instantly moved to tears the moment he puts on the glasses. He doesn't say much, and just looks around to take in his surroundings.

"It's weird," he eventually is able to say. "This is a lot different than what I always thought it was going to be like."
