Sweet Louise gets her new glasses and “sees” her mummy for the very first time

Her reaction will melt your heart

Katie Mythen-Lynch

One of the great joys of being a parent is watching your baby react when they begin to recognise your face.

For little Louise however, albinism created vision problems that left her unable to see her family clearly.

Watch what happens when Louise is fitted with her first pair of glasses, which allow her to see her mummy’s face in detail for the very first time. The video, which has been viewed over one million times, was captioned with the following post:

“Our sweet Louise who has Albinism, received her glasses! This is her reaction from putting them on for the first time. It seems like she is really “seeing” her mommy for the first time. Love!”
