This is Aaron.

Aaron is colorblind, but his parents got him a pair of the new EnChroma glasses for his birthday that allow some people with color-deficient vision to see colors they've never seen before.

Thanks to the glasses, Aaron got to see this beautiful sunset in full color for the first time ever.

Most people with color blindness can still see some color, but due to deficiencies in the retinal cones in their eyes, certain colors will appear dull or will be mixed up with other colors.

His reaction was pretty emotional.

And he found all the right words to describe the moment.

Pretty much the best birthday present ever.

Check out the whole video, including Aaron marveling over turquoise.
