Knight of Sight
presented to Dr. Michael Vrabec
April 17, 2014 --
The Fond du Lac Evening Lions Club presented the
prestigious Knight of Sight Fellowship to Dr. Michael Vrabec at a
presentation in his office. He was chosen for his continued support
to the Lions Eye Bank of Wisconsin performing numerous surgeries to
individuals needing cornea replacements. After the surgery, a
personís eyesight is so improved, they are able to resume a normal
lifestyle and able to return to work. A Knight of Sight Fellowship
is awarded by the Lions Eye Bank upon receipt of a $1,000 donation
by a club or an individual to the Eye Bank's operating fund.
Dr. Vrabec recently performed surgery on a Fond du
Lac resident. The Lions Club helped pay for the tissue expense.
Lions from all over the state volunteer their time
and automobiles to transport donated eye tissue down to the eye bank
in Madison for processing. The corneas are then transported back to
doctors throughout the state for transplantation.
Other FDL Evening Lions that are Knight of Sight
Fellows are Wayne Bargenquast, Frank Bartzen, Tom and Betty Clausen,
Gary Colton and Erv Karls.
