CHICO, Calif. - A former volleyball coach and teacher at Pleasant Valley High School saw color for the first time after his friends gifted him a pair of EnChroma glasses.
"I can see! I can see! Go big red!" said Tom Melton.
Color blindness affects about 8% of men. Melton and his brother are colorblind. He said these new glasses make everything bright.
The National Eye Institute says there is no cure for color blindness, but people with red-green color blindness may be able to use a special set of lenses like the pair Melton used.
