Gave my color blind son EnChroma at Clemson tailgate [video]

He had never before seen Orange/Purple. We gave him the glasses at the Wofford tailgate and then attended the game. Purple everywhere. What an incredible experience. Be sure and turn on the Closed Caption [CC]. He was already ALL IN but now his favorite colors are ORANGE/PURPLE

Go Tigers!

These videos get me every time.

Makes you think what do we really have to complain about... Just the ability to see/distinguish color seems so trivial and something you don't ever think about.

Then, one of these videos come along and you see how powerful something like this is.


I'm glad you were able to give that gift to your son.

implants being turned on for the first time for people. Those will make confetti get in your eyes too.

The EnChroma glasses ones are really heartwarming. Almost invariably, the recipient cries, regardless of their age. Try to imagine how you would feel, living in a pale world that suddenly lights up with colors bursting out everywhere. Truly some great technology right there.

My Tiger roommate was colorblind, but it wasn't until we were heading to his place on Hilton Head (circa mid-70s) and I commented on the 'green' stop sign. He said, "Really, it's green? I thought it was orange!" I was stunned! LOL! That's when he told me green was orange to him...suffice to say, he was in heaven when the Death Valley turf was green...err...orange!
