TAMPA, FL (WFLA) - Christmas came early for nearly 100 blind and visually impaired students, first through fifth grade Friday in Tampa.

They got the chance to meet Santa, open presents and partake in the holiday festivities with Santa himself.

Because these children use their senses differently, the Lions Eye Institute for Transplant & Research had purchased special touch and sound presents, and organized various craft and holiday activities throughout the event.  The children were all smiles as they waited in line to meet Santa and Mrs. Claus.

These students are all a part of Hillsborough County's Very Important People who are Visually Impaired People (VIP2) program.
