WATCH: Emotional moment colorblind man sees sunset in full color for the first time

Norfolk, Va.- The emotional moment a colorblind man sees the sunset in full color for the first time is going viral online.

The moment is so emotional for Aaron Williams-Mele, he’s moved to tears.

According to Business Insider, Williams-Mele used EnChroma lenses to see the sunset, which use mathematical formulas to boost color vision. These lenses work directly with the brains vision system, to help users see different color variations.

But for Williams-Mele, the experience was nothing less than astonishing.

“My parents gave me a pair of Enchroma Color For The Colorblind glasses for my birthday,” he wrote in the description of the video, posted on YouTube. “I decided to try them on for the first time during a sunset at Whitehurst Beach in Norfolk, Virginia. Needless to say, it was a pretty emotional experience.”
