Man sees for the first time in 10 years thanks to special glasses. Nydia Han reports during Action News at 9 a.m. on December 2, 2018.

An Iowa man is seeing again for the first time in ten years, thanks to a special pair of glasses.

David Hereid lost his sight to a rare disease called "multi-focal choroiditis."

He has minimal peripheral vision.

However, all of that changed last week thanks to a pair of hi-tech glasses.

They look like something you'd wear to play a video game, but the "eSight 3" glasses are meant for the visually impaired.

They electronically restore sight, making vision a reality for those who can't see.
