Making Somthing Fun!
I was born blind in my left eye and it is small so I wear a prosthetic one over it. Over the years I have had many eyes made by my very talented ocularists. And each one is unique and special, in its own way.

Typically getting a new eye made has not been something I have enjoyed. To make it more fun I asked my ocularists if they could draw something on the top of my prosthetic eye. And they said yes. On my first one, I requested french fries and on the second one, I requested an owl. It made it so much more fun and look how good they did on all of my eyes. :)

- If you have a prosthetic eye maybe next time you have one made you can ask your ocularists to draw something on your eye!
