After trying the glasses on, he begins to cry and says, “Thank you so much,” as he goes in for a hug from Mom. He continues to thank his parents, and his dad says, “Happy birthday, Jude.”

In the background, his 13-year-old brother is visibly moved by the display.

Since being shared on Reddit, thousands of people flocked to the video to comment. Most were moved by the clip, but some wanted to help educate others about the realities of colorblind glasses.

One user, u/QuantumModulus, explained: “Enchroma glasses don’t “fix” colorblindness, or give the color-blind the ability to see colors in the ways normal vision works. It filters certain colors in a way that gives different colors more contrast, which they might normally perceive as being too close to identify any difference.”

Based on Jude’s reaction, the difference is enough to be significant and we’re so happy for him! You can see his reaction for yourself in the video below:
