Most of us take the little things in life for granted. The fact that we get to wake up every morning and see the world around us is a blessing in itself. There are some people out there who aren’t able to see. Sadly, even young children are stricken with blindness and severe visions problems. This makes it hard for them to learn and thoroughly enjoy the world around them.
Christian is a young baby with vision issues.
He hasn’t been able to see clearly since birth. It took a while for his parents and doctors to realize that Christian was having problems seeing. He wasn’t able to tell them he couldn’t see well, but his parents noticed that something wasn’t right. They took him to an eye doctor, who diagnosed his issues and recommended glasses.
A lot of people aren’t used to seeing small babies with glasses. Babies can have the same vision problems as adults. Sometimes they require glasses because their eyes are underdeveloped and not strong enough to see correctly, have lazy eyes, are cross-eyed, or just have minor impairments. Glasses can usually help, and sometimes kids only have to wear them for a short time to make their vision stronger.
Putting glasses on an infant isn’t easy.
They can’t wear regular glasses that older children and adults might wear. They would fall off the baby’s face or could even break and harm the baby. Babies also like to pull them off and chew on them or throw them around. Christian was given a pair of soft, plastic glasses that had the lenses he required in them. His parents weren’t sure how he would react to the glasses, but they decided to video the entire thing to record his reaction.
Once Christian’s mom put the glasses on the baby, his face seemed to light up.
It was as if everything finally made sense and he could see the world correctly. He looked around and smiled and really seemed to be able to notice the difference. Of course, this also made his parents extremely happy to see their baby doing so well.
Christian had spent the first few months of his life not being able to see.
He had missed out on so many things but now that he had glasses that could help improve his vision, he would be able to see and live a normal life. His parents would be able to show him things and know that he was really experiencing them. Christian’s life was obviously going to be much better as a result of the glasses, and so would his parents’.
Christian’s smile seems to say it all. If he is this happy after only being able to see clearly for a few minutes, imagine how happy he will be when he gets to go outside, ride in the car, and see his friends and other family members. Something most of us take for granted means everything to this little baby and his family.
Hopefully, the glasses help Christian and his vision becomes better as he grows older.
Even if he has to wear glasses for the rest of his life, he probably won’t mind. As he grows, he may not remember what it was like to not be able to see well before his glasses, but since his parents recorded this video, he will always know how happy the gift of sight made him. Christian has an entire world to see, and it looks like he will be doing it with a positive attitude and a big smile.
