'I Didn't Know It Was Like That!' Colorblind Grandfather Tries on Corrective Glasses for First Time

An 80-year-old grandfather reacted with amazement when he tried on a pair of color-corrective glasses his grandchildren gave him on December 27.

The video shows Lee Measom putting on his glasses at his home in Springville, Utah, and seeing the full spectrum of colors for the first time in his life.

Measom’s son, Spencer Measom, captured the video and told Storyful the ColorTech glasses were a gift from his two sons, Cameron and McKay Measom.

The footage was shared in a post on Facebook where the colorblind grandfather is noticeably overwhelmed by the rich shades of color around him. Credit: Spencer Measom via Storyful
