A touching video of two brothers overwhelmed by emotion after seeing colors for the first time is causing more than a few viewers to shed tears themselves.

“They’re both color-blind,” the mother of the two young men, Jimmy and Jace Papenhausen, says in the video of her sons trying on a pair of EnChroma glasses.

According to the website for the technology-enhanced glasses, each pair “alleviates red-green color blindness, enhancing colors without the compromise of color accuracy.”

The difference was enough to immediately move each brother to tears after putting on the glasses and looking at a colored towel and a bunch of green, red, orange and purple balloons.

"It's so bright," Jace says through tears. “It’s so different. That towel is completely different.”
