Blind Father Sees Family For First Time

posted by Daniel Travers - 

A blind dad is given special glasses to see his family for the first time.

When William Weeks was only five years old, he experienced an unusual illness that affected his retinas. Consequently, he has merely managed to recognize shapes in addition to colors. Although he is currently married and has two sons, he has never ever seen their faces. "I believe I have a perfect picture of what they look like, but being able to look out of my own eyes to see them I'm not able to," Weeks explained to Lester Holt on Nightly News. "People for instance see one of my sons and they say, 'you look like your dad.' People have no idea how that makes me feel because in my mind, what does that mean?" Weeks had been raising finances for the past year to purchase state of the art glasses known as eSight which use high-definition camera devices and also very small motors. The eyeglasses would allow him to finally view his loved ones. Unknown to him, the event Weeks will view his family members occurred a whole lot earlier than anticipated. He received the glasses as a surprise, saw his spouse and also children for the very first time, and then saw his mom for the very first time in 33 years.
