When William Weeks was just 5 years old, he suffered a rare illness that damaged his retinas. Since then, he's only been able to make out shapes and colors. Even though he's now married and has two sons, he's never seen their faces. "I believe I have a perfect picture of what they look like, but being able to look out of my own eyes to see them I'm not able to," Weeks told Lester Holt on Nightly News. "People for instance see one of my sons and they say, 'you look like your dad.' People have no idea how that makes me feel because in my mind, what does that mean?" Weeks has been raising money for the past year to get a hold of high-tech classes called eSight that use high-definition cameras and tiny motors. The glasses would allow him to finally see his family. Unknown to him, the day Weeks would see his family came a lot sooner than expected. He got the glasses as a surprise, saw his wife and kids for the first time, and saw his mother for the first time in 33 years.
