They say love is blind, but in Kathy Beitz's case, it literally was. Beitz, legally blind since childhood due to a condition known as Stargardt disease, recently gave birth to her first child. Never recalling seeing a baby in her life, Betiz didn't expect that the first baby she'd ever see was her own newborn son Aksel. But thanks to a pair of high-tech glasses, known as an e-sight device, Beitz was able to marvel over Aksel's tiny digits and gush like all new parents do, "Look at his long toes. He's got Tony's toes. You know what? I think he has my nose. I think he looks like us."
And guess what? It was all caught on tape! Cue the waterworks:
The e-sight glasses only works for people who are legally blind but still have some vision. It is head-mounted and basically works like a giant electronic magnifying glass. Amazing, isn't it?
