Sight is something many of us may take for granted, but for millions of children in America their vision is one thing they’d like to improve.

One local young woman has made it her goal to help visually impaired children in our area.

That person is Miss Jefferson County Hayley Barber.

This collaborating on a program called “Sight Savers America.”

“We provide comprehensive eye care for over 40,000 children each year through a network of child referral agencies, medical providers and other eye care professionals,” according to sightsaversamerica.org. “This children’s eye care network provides vision screenings, eye exams, eyeglasses, medications, surgeries, low vision assessments, vision aids and other therapeutic vision treatments. We also coordinate transportation, medical insurance and follow-up care. We perform comprehensive, school-based, head to toe health screenings for over 30,000 children each year; including blood pressure, BMI, respiratory rate, ear/nose/throat, temperature, dental, vision, hearing, and medical insurance status.”

Also, “Singing for Sight” is tonight at Westwood Baptist Church in Birmingham.

It starts at 5 p.m.
