Brant Estes can be seen handing his friend a pair of Enchroma colour correction glasses to try on. As he places the glasses on his face, he becomes emotional as he begins to see the world in colour.
The Telegraph spoke to Mr Estes, from Washington State, US, who explained how he had been inspired to buy the glasses after watching a video of a colourblind person trying them for the first time on YouTube.
Mr Estes was so moved by the person's reaction that he decided to buy the $350 glasses for his friend - with whom he has worked for over a decade - as a birthday present.
The daughter of Mr Estes's friend, from Portland, Oregon, can also be seen in the video looking on as her father marvels at the world around him.
Her hair is a vibrant shade of purple, which Mr Estes said had been dyed specifically for the occasion.
Seconds after putting on the glasses, her father cries out: "Oh my God your hair is purple!"

I'm color blind, and having deuteranopia is kind of fun as my friends kinda play with it a lot of time. I don't mind, it's genetic, but I would love to see true colors for once.
My question, how did he know it was purple?

Oh man!! That right there made this entire thread worth every second. I am so excited for you and them and am so glad that you ran across it. I'd have to ask that you please come back by here and let us know of their experience here when/if they get some of these glasses. Please! I would love to know how it works out for you all!
That just made my entire week! No kidding!!
