For 13 million Americans who suffer from colorblindness, however, the scenery remains a bland shade of greenish-brown.

Great video PJ.

As I watched that, and they started crying, I had to think - are they crying because they just found something, or are they crying because it will be lost again the moment they leave that viewer?

It had to be a bittersweet experience for these people.

I agree the rush of emotions involved would be mind boggling. 

I'm glad to have seen it, I just wish I could see it all my life"

Says it well.

Hi PJ,

One of my closest friends is colorblind. I saw this on the news and told him about it and he's now looking into if people can buy these special optics. He has always felt like something was missing in his life. 

Thanks for sharing.. I am sure lots of people really don't get what it is like to be colorblind.

My Maternal Grandfather was colorblind. My Grandmother laid out his clothes for him every day and bought most of his clothing. 

But, his being color blind helped when he was in the Marines during WWII, and he could spot the camouflaged artillery gun positions from the air for the troops on the ground. He could also spot the snipers hiding in the trees and brush from the ground. It helped to save lives from being lost.
