Around one in 12 men and one in 200 women have some type of color blindness, the most common being the “red-green color blindness.”
Color blindness occurs when the eyes are unable to distinguish between certain colors. People who are color blind can usually still see colors, but have a harder time telling some apart.
While it can be frustrating to go through life with color blindness, there is hope. Thanks to today’s technology, a color blind person can now see the colors they’ve been missing.
A pair of Enchroma glasses can now help people see color by removing particular wavelengths of light where it overlaps, helping the person tell one color from another.
These glasses seem almost too good to be true, and their price tag is enough to make someone hesitate to buy them.
However, one company’s employees decided that they wanted to give back to their hard-working boss. They all chipped in to buy the pair of glasses for him and walked in with a gift bag and some brightly colored balloons.
“We really appreciate everything you do for us, so we got you a little present,” an employee said as she handed him the bag.
He was surprised that they even had a gift for him, and was excited to see what the bag held.
As he pulled out the tissue paper, he couldn’t help but smile when he saw the glasses.
Once he put the glasses on, he was amazed by all the colors around him. He pointed out the colors on the balloons, and everyone clapped and cheered as he got the colors right.
“Look at this thing! It’s funny,” he said as he noticed the colors on a bag of chips.

As they walked outside, he was so excited to see the world and the many different colors it now had to offer him.
“You’re gonna be able to pick out your ties now,” an employee said.
“I know,” the boss replied with a smile.
What a great gift to give back to someone who gave so much to others!
