Stevie Kaczor is legally colorblind, and she recently realized just how much she’d been missing.

Inside Edition filmed as she put on a pair of Enchroma glasses that were a surprise from her classmates and art teacher.

In the video, she picks up a green balloon and says, “Is this green? Is this what trees look like?”

She’d been planning to get a job and buy a pair of the glasses herself after graduation. So the gift from her classmates and school was a welcome surprise.

As she looked around the room while wearing the glasses, she exclaimed: “I’m going to cry!”

The coolest stuff comes to light on the popular Opticians on Facebook group.

The other day, someone shared a video clip about eyeglass fashions of the 1950s — and if you like vintage looks, you’ll find it fascinating.

The short video shows an optician matching frames to women based on their face shapes, coloring and accessories.

“Apart from protecting and assisting eyesight, opticians are not content to make frames that blend,” the narrator explains in the 1955 video from British Pathé. “Their aim is to beautify some of the 11 million women who wear glasses.”

Sound familiar? It seems that the optician of decades ago were pretty similar to the professionals of today.

It sure would be fun to work with some of the frames they had back then, though.

VIDEO that’s become extremely popular on Facebook shows the incredible handiwork that went into making eyeglasses in decades gone by.

The clip takes viewers from the optician’s office through the entire production process at a London factory. Workers can be seen carefully performing each step in making the lenses and frames, with much of the labor performed by hand.

The narrator notes: “What is staggering is the amount of individual skill there is that goes into the production of such conveyor-belt commodities.”
