Superheroes save man’s eyesight
Phil Hester draws superheroes for a living, but little did he know that he would one day need two superheroes to restore his sight. "Eyesight is important to everyone," says Phil. "But as an artist, it’s an integral part of my identity."
For the past 30 years, Phil Hester of North English, Iowa has worked as a professional comic book artist. He has written and drawn comics for hundreds of publications and his artwork has been featured in popular titles such as Green Arrow, Swamp Thing, Wonder Woman, Ant-Man, The Flash, Batman Beyond, and more.
In 2015, shortly after being diagnosed with a cardiac condition, Phil began having difficulty seeing his drawing board. His eyesight was foggy in the mornings and he noticed more glare coming from light fixtures. "I just figured it was one of the side effects of the new blood pressure medication I was taking," says Phil.
