What a great story. Using new technology, a 12 year old sees for the first time in his life.
A Virginia fifth-grader whose eye muscles never fully developed, leaving him legally blind, was finally able to see his mother with a technology called eSight. When Chris Ward, 12, set his eyes on his mom, he gave her a compliment that brought tears to her eyes.
“Well when I first saw my mom for the first time, she was pretty.”
Marquita Hackley, Ward’s mother, said, “I just broke down and cried.”
Ward also got to see words on a page for the first time.
Here’s the rest of the story from Fox Health News.
