Sight, of course, is something we shouldn't take for granted. Thankfully though, if you don't have the best vision, eyeglasses can fix that problem.
For the homeless though, getting a pair is difficult.
Saturday, an event called "Operation Eyeglasses" offered some relief.
A couple hundred people walked into the Kroc Center Saturday. Some of them had the type of vision that makes it a difficult task.
One by one, everyone got their eyes checked. Arlo Tillenburg has eyes that are getting worse with age.
"I squint my eyes. I get a headache because I can't see. It does get frustrating if I don't have the proper glasses to read," said Tillenburg.
In "Operation Eyeglasses," several homeless shelters brought people over who needed glasses. They got to visit the doctor for a prescription, and pick out their own frames. All of it was free from donations.
"It's important to get everybody a healthy eye exam and a good pair of glasses to basically manage themselves through their life," said Chris Tirro, an organizer from the Nebraska Society of Dispensing Opticians.
A new look and the ability to see means a lot to Tillenburg. He can't wait to get reading. "Darn right! That's a silly question. I'll be glad to get back into the reading," he said.
Saturday marked the second year for the event.
