The cute chuckle from four-month-old baby, Leopold says all. This is the heartwarming moment captured on camera of baby Leo smiling in delight after being able to see his mother clearly for the first time in his life.

Baby Leo suffers from a rare disorder called Oculocutaneous Albinism (OCA). The condition affects the color of their skin, hair and severely impairs their vision. OCA affects one in 20,000 children.

The family sought treatment from an LA-based pediatric ophthalmologist and had the special infant glasses made. The glasses have normal lenses but are made of a rubber like material which has no screws, no hinges and no sharp edges. 

A small gathering of the family was there for the moment when Leo’s experienced the glasses for the first time.

Leo’s Father David has said “I was overwhelmed with emotion. It’s just very touching. You cannot anticipate how you’re going to feel when something like that happens.” 

The video ends with Leo focused on his mother glowing with happiness. He even begins giggling as she talks to him.
