(CNN) – A Minnesota man has been blind for a decade, but he is finally able to see the smiles on his family’s faces.

The cameras were rolling as Allen Zderad saw his wife for the first time in 10 years. Zderad has Retinitis Pigmentosa, a degenerative condition that left him unable to see anything but a bright light.

Zderad received an eye implant and the wires from the implant connect to the glasses and camera at the bridge of the nose, allowing him to see.

Zderad can now make out the outlines of objects and people.

Thanks to the implant, Zderad can now see his wife and their 10 grandchildren.
