WAXAHACHIE, Tx. - The glasses allowed her to read regular print and will undoubtedly help her in the classroom as she heads to Texas Tech in the Fall.
"I think the thing that, when I got really emotional about everything, is what these glasses have the potential to do for me," Lexi told FOX 4.
However, it couldn’t compare to the emotion she felt when she saw her parents’ faces.
"She looked toward us. The smile came on Lexi's face and my wife Dena just took off running toward her,” said dad Alex Rendon.
“Just tears of joy knowing that she saw me,” added Dena Rendon.
With her new e-glasses, her trusty guide dog at her side, and a community behind her -- It’s college that needs to look out for Lexi.
