It's a story WAAY 31 first brought you earlier this month.
A bus crash in the Shoals left a little boy without his prescription glasses. So WAAY 31 made a call, and the doctor's office office agreed to replace them for free.
Thursday, five-year-old Braden Crenshaw, his mom and brother walked through the doors at Eye Care Associates in Madison to get his free glasses after a bus crash in Colbert County left his old pair destroyed.
"We found like three pieces of his glasses out of the wreck," said Braden's mother, Jodie Crenshaw.
We first met Braden and his family over a week ago, after a tractor-trailer hit Braden's bus sending him and two other students to the hospital in the Shoals.
"When he was in the wreck it didn't mess his eyes up," said Crenshaw.
But it did leave Braden with a concussion and shattered his special glasses his family paid out of pocket for. After the crash, we contacted Braden's Doctor, Mary Tally Watson with Eye Care Associates in Madison and told them about the crash. Within the hour they ordered Braden a new pair of glasses for free. Watson told WAAY 31 they didn't think twice about helping Braden out because those glasses are vital to his sight.
"He's had eye surgery to help with his eye alignment. If he doesn't wear his glasses it messes up his eye alignment," said Dr. Watson.
As Braden's new glasses were adjusted to fit him, his mom started tearing up.
"They have done something that I wouldn't be able to do and afford it's amazing. It's overwhelming right now," said Crenshaw.
Braden was pretty excited too, giving everyone hugs in his new glasses.
"I can see again!," said Braden, with a big smile on his face.
Crenshaw told us through her tears of joy she can't believe the kindness of his doctors , the staff at Eye Care Associates, and WAAY 31.
"We were strangers to you. It's heartwarming to know there's people out there that care," said Crenshaw.
As they were leaving to go back to their home in Colbert County, Braden gave a big "thank you," to everyone.
