    Valspar Paint is teaming up with EnChroma, a company created to study the possibility of enhancing color vision. Together, they have developed these special glasses to help colorblind people see in color for the first time.

    Chris, who is colorblind, got to experience what he felt was "a world of color that I'm just sort of missing out on."

    Atlee also has an emotional response. She adds:

    "I never realized, like, how much I was affected by the fact that I can't see the world, like, the way that other people see the world."

    Andrew finally gets to really see his kid's artwork:

    "When he's drawing, I see him going in and out of his crayon box like 150 times, sometimes... And now I kinda know why. There's a lot more colors here."

    And finally, Keith was rendered speechless.
