Some special glasses, which look like something out of Star Trek, are making it possible for Chris Ward to see.
Ward, who was a 5th grader at Thomas Jefferson Elementary School last year, was born blind. The optic nerves that are supposed to connect his eyes to his brain did not fully develop. He has very limited vision in one eye and none in the other. Without the glasses he can only see something by holding it less than an inch from the eye.
