Colourblind 22-year-old sees colour for first time after putting on special glasses

As a colourblind man, McKinley “Mac” Erves had never known exactly what he was missing.

But his friends showed him a whole new world on Monday afternoon when they gifted him special colourblindness glasses for his 22nd birthday.

His genuine and endearing reaction to the glasses, which he says changed his life, immediately went viral online.

“I was at a loss for words,” Erves said.

“For them to actually go out of their way and remember and do something for me like that when I never expressed how badly I wanted the glasses, it made me feel really good.”

As of Tuesday night, his video on Twitter had more than 150,000 likes and dozens of positive responses.

“The fact that I hardly ever mentioned my want for colourblind glasses and my friends literally went out of their way to get me a pair for my birthday just tells me how much they love my a** and I couldn’t have asked for better people to call my brothers!!!” Erves wrote in his post.

The video shows Erves walking around his driveway, exclaiming as he looks at everyday objects in full colour.

“Bro what?!” he shouted excitedly in disbelief as he looked at a green bush in front of his house.

“Bro, there’s no way y’all see that s—.”
