Shane Jacobson shares a touching post “I only share this with you all so that you can see the moment that our beautiful baby boy gets to see us and the world clearly for the first time.”

Shane Jacobson is an Australian actor known recently for his role in the movie Oddball. He is a father of four with wife Felicity. He shared this cute video on Facebook with the caption –
“My wonderful partner Fliss thought that our baby boy had a vision problem and decided to get him checked early, I am SO glad she did, it turned out she was right. I only share this with you all so that you can see the moment that our beautiful baby boy gets to see us and the world clearly for the first time. If you think your children may have vision problems, I can assure it’s worth the effort to get them tested. It has changed his world.”

  • super cute – and the joy on their baby’s face was priceless x


  • what a beautiful video. amazing what can be done.


  • What a wonderful story. Thanks so much.


  • I think it is excellent that they share this to help raise awareness for other families. I think rule of thumb as a parent if ever concerned please, please, please just get it checked out. No one will laugh at you and it isn’t a waste of time if everything turns out fine.

    • yeah it will be peace of mind either way :) it is sorted!


  • I’ve seen this across a number of sites. It was just adorable. The sheer excitement of Shane, his wife and their son. It was remarkable.


  • Thank you for sharing this beautiful video, it is absolutely heart warming. The whole world is now there for this little one to see!


  • Such a great news story. It just proves what determination on the part of parents can achieve. Being able to see will change his life so much from what it may have been.


  • How kind of you to share this very private family moment so that others will not hesitate to do what is best for their child!

    • Good point – such a good example for people to follow.


  • That is beautiful. What wonderful parents. We loved Shane in Oddball. That is a fab movie. Fliss is a lovely caring mum. So good she had bub’s eyes checked.


  • Awww what a gorgeous little man!!


  • This is really touching…
    As someone who has worn glasses since I was three and a half, that to this day could not live without them. I truly appreciate what my parents have done for me…
    I can’t remember life before glasses but I do know if I take them off now I am in trouble.


  • What a wonderful smile when he finally saw properly – thanks for sharing, Shane.


  • Isn’t it WONDERFUL that we live in a part of the world where we can access medical care as we need so our children can see, hear and get the help they (& their families need) for many other different conditions/illnesses to make their lives better and happier.


  • So pleased people like this share as then more parents are aware of the risks and get them checked


  • Wonderful story. I work in the optics industry and its moments like these that make my choice of career worthwhile! The look on his face is priceless. Its so great that he shared this moment as it is so important to be diligent with children’s vision. 90% of learning is done through the eyes so they are super important. Also a lot of so called behavioural issues are to do with the fact the child is not seeing properly, they can’t express a vision issue as they don’t know any different if they were born with poor vision!

    • oh wow. that must be amazing to see the difference for yourself. literally
