Watch: Dozens see color thanks to high-tech glasses and donut shop

Folks who are colorblind or struggle to identify shades got a belated Christmas gift. Thanks to technology and generosity.

Elijah's smile ..says it all.

"I see a light purple and a light green," he said.

Dozens of people saw what so many take for granted.

"Reds, oranges, greens and yellows and blues," said Ty McCully. McCully came up from Monett and saw purple for the first time.

A colorful store for all to see. A vivid Christmas, Sam Cedar, will cherish.

"This is probably the greatest Christmas gift anyone could ask for. I'm so thankful I got the opportunity to come up and try these," he said.

If you know someone who would like to try on those glasses -- Hurts Donut will keep them in different stores. The special glasses cost hundreds of dollars. They don't work for everyone and results vary. Perhaps you noticed while watching the story, colorblindness is more common in men than women.
