Justin Skapczynski is 22-year-old who has been red and green colorblind since birth. BuzzFeed spoke to Justin, who explained, "I still can see some color, but I can only describe it as muted to someone who can see the full spectrum of color."
Justin's girlfriend, Halie Dorsa, decided to surprise him with some color-blind sunglasses for their recent one-year anniversary. "He's always confusing colors and making comments about being colorblind, so I decided to see if they would work for him," she told BuzzFeed.
Halie decided to film a TikTok of Justin wearing the glasses for the first time. At first, Justin just thought Halie had gotten him regular aviator sunglasses. He said he was shocked when he realized they were actually colorblindness-correcting glasses. "Seeing vibrant color for the first time was exhilarating," he explained.
The video of Justin quickly gained more than 20 million views.
