CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A Warren County 17-year-old hasn't been able to experience fireworks because of a visual impairment - until now.
Primo Averion has been legally blind for most of his life.
"I haven't really seen actually seen fireworks-fireworks. I can like feel them and I can sort of… I can obviously hear them, but just seeing them has always just been like a flash in the sky, nothing very exciting to see," Averion said.
A company called eSight was able to put a new lease on his vision with a special device. Averion's new specs can condense the world around him to fit in-line with his visual capabilities.
"It's just such a gift, it's just truly a gift to see him look at anything," his mother, Lisa Averion, said.
On Wednesday, Averion took in his first Firework show at Kings Island and said he absolutely loved it.
