This is the emotional moment a 10-year-old boy sees colour for the very first time, thanks to a pair of ‘miracle’ glasses.
Facetiming his family at home in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA, little Xavier McCoury is about to receive the early birthday present of a lifetime, as his decade of seeing only shades of grey, white and black, will soon be coming to an end.
Staring at the mystery box excitedly, the baseball enthusiast begins shredding the package apart when his aunt Celena reveals that it holds the ‘special glasses’ that will allow him to see colour, that he’s been hoping for.
As soon as he places the glasses on his face, the tears begin to stream down from his eyes as the rich colours of blue, green and yellow of his environment finally reveal themselves leaving mum Melissa to hug him.
Melissa said: “It’s impossible to describe how much this moment meant to him and the whole of our family.”
