There are so many simple things in this world that most of us take for granted. Being able to hear, smell, see are all essential human functions—but are also luxuries for some.

A man named Gene from Denver, Colorado, was born with Stargardt disease, which meant that over time, his eyesight deteriorated until he was legally blind and couldn’t really see at all.

While he was able to go on living his life without much issue, there was still something missing in his life. Having a wife and child named Lincoln that he’d never actually been able to see before.

When an opportunity came up to appear on the Rachel Ray show, to try out groundbreaking technology that would allow Gene to see—his wife knew that this was an opportunity they could not miss.

When the glasses are put on Gene’s head, he can finally look up at his wife and kid and is completely stunned. You can only imagine what must be going through his head.

When asked what he sees, he simply responds by saying, “she’s pretty,” and is overcome with emotion. You can’t help but hold back tears when seeing this decisive moment.

It’s truly remarkable to know that they could build such a strong marriage without him ever seeing her. It just goes to show that love is truly blind.
