Dan Brogger has been colorblind for most of his life.

"I really didn't know I was colorblind," he said. "In elementary school, when we were coloring, I'd have to look at the words on the crayons to know exactly what color it was."

The registered nurse said that he's only able to tell the color of items based on their positions, such as stop lights, as well as dull shades of color.

On Father's Day, Brogger received glasses that allowed him to truly see color for the first time.

"I was instantly able to see how bright (the colors) were and how absolutely vibrant and distinct each color was," he said. "I said it that day and probably every day since that this is the best present I've ever received."
