NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Lehmann Eye Center's Gift of Sight Celebration.

Free cataract surgeries to participating patients are performed just in time for Thanksgiving. This outreach program helps individuals from across East Texas see the holidays in a whole new light.

Thousands of people have been helped since Dr. Robert Lehmann began Gift of Sight. The Gift of Sight program helps restore vision loss caused by cataracts and other leading causes of blindness. People without medical insurance or the financial means to pay for surgery are helped.
