Heros for Sight

Not all superheros wear capes. The heros I worked with recently help kids discover vision issues and get the help they need along with service individuals of all ages with vision problems all over the United States.

About the Event

Annually, Sight Savers America holds a special celebration to honor individuals or organizations whose impact on children’s eye care in the state of Alabama has been both lasting and profound.  The Sight Savers America Hall W. Thompson Hero For Sight Award is presented each year in honor of Hall Thompson’s legacy of supporting children’s eye care in Alabama.  Hall was instrumental in helping Sight Savers America expand to serve children in all 67 Alabama counties.  Through the work of Sight Savers America, Alabama is a national model for children’s eye care and Hall Thompson played an important role in that achievement.
