Although they can be hard to raise, children bring so much joy into our lives because they provide us memorable moments like this clip here. This is the first time Piper tries on her glasses to see her mother clearly! Piper was born with a rare autosomal recessive genetic condition called Oculocutaneous Albinism.
As a result, she is visually impaired and has Nystagmus, which is uncontrollable eye movements that make it difficult for Piper to focus. In this video, Piper is almost 5 months old. Check out her absolutely heart-melting reaction! So adorable!
This little girl seems so happy to finally be able to see her mom! Then again, who wouldn’t? Her reaction is priceless and one that comes once in a lifetime! It must be hard to not be able to see very well and it is a good thing that this adorable bundle of joy managed to get a pair of pretty glasses. Sight is one of those things that we often take for granted and do not realize how much it means to us.
It can be a little heartbreaking to see such tiny babies in need of corrective eyewear, but the fact of life is there are hereditary conditions that create such issues with babies. Still, technology and medicine have come a long way in helping these little souls life their best life possible.
Children born with Albinism can be struck pretty hard, what with the lack of pigment in the retina and other, more complex issues. But with such stylish eyeglasses like Piper’s, no one will ever notice!
