A beautiful video of a baby boy seeing his mother clearly for the first time has recently emerged online and is touching the hearts of millions of people around the world.
The video was filmed in Washington and was taken by Leopold’s loved ones. It shows his reaction to his brand new pair of glasses, that were made to drastically improve his vision.
Leopold suffers from a rare disorder called Oculocutaneous Albinism (OCA) which affects the coloring of his skin, hair, and eyes. This disorder has resulted in him having heavily impaired vision his whole life, until now.
In the video, Leopold’s glasses are placed on his face and it takes him just a second to register that his vision has changed.
He looks up towards his mother who is crouched down in front of him smiling. He sees her happy face and immediately smiles back – recognizing her clearly for the very first time.
He looks down towards his hands, noticing how different his surroundings look before looking back towards his mother’s face.
“Today he received his glasses, and can now see the world clearly for the very first time,” wrote Leopold’s mother.
