Established in 1979 - Founder James H. Hall, owner of Georgia Electric Company in Albany, Georgia, suffered multiple and serious eye problems including a tumor, glaucoma, cataracts, and detached retina. In his search for treatment, he found a group of outstanding ophthalmologists who treated and preserved his vision. He established the Center to ensure indigent children could obtain the finest ophthalmological care to prevent vision loss or even blindness.

Purpose and Activities

Our mission is to preserve and restore sight in early childhood through education, clinical research and blindness prevention programs. We provide free access to the finest ophthalmologic and surgical care to infants and children, neglected by medical establishments who cannot afford medical care. The Center makes significant contributions to American medicine by training highly qualified pediatric ophthalmologists and plays a critical role in the advancement of groundbreaking clinical research to develop more effective treatments and cures for diseases of the visual system that damage and destroy eyesight. .
