It takes months for babies to learn to smile. What happens when they are practically blind and all of a sudden are able to see?
Four-month-old Leopold Wilbur Reppond, suffers from a rare disease called oculocutaneous albinism which severely impairs his vision. He had never clearly seen his family, and is only able to identify his parents though their voice or with the use of his hands.
Thanks to Miraflex’s special baby glasses, adorable Leo was finally given the opportunity to see. In the video, Erin, Leo’s mother, puts the glasses on her baby boy. After a few moments, you see him realize that something is ‘different’ and he looks up to his mother for the first time and gives her a huge smile.
