Cosmetic eye it's a pig

Well for those that know my story, I,m still with squint, any way they now want me to have a cosmetic eye schell, had my appointment last week, and can you believe it my original eye surgeon, said I have not fobbed you off like the other eye surgeons, I,m not violent in any way but just for a moment I could have poked his lights out. As he did original ops twice, my word I could have smoked a thousand fags and while I have not been out socially in over 18 months , I still have not smoked.

And I,m proud of that:)

For all who are struggling, just keep going

  • Oh Tracey...honestly, I think you did really well not to lump him one, and even better to not immediately go out the back and light up. Well done you :)

    On the subject of prosthetic eyes, if it is any help my OH has one (he lost his eye following a freak accident with a breakfast cereal packet when he was a toddler :)) and you'd really never know it was a falsie. I had no idea when I first knew him- it was only when he took it out to clean it that I realised :D

    Thanks one and all.

    I,m not to sure about having one I have never seen some one in the flesh who had one, but thanks for sharing that with me:)

  • I was thinking on similar lines Cupster.

    Tracey, how much vision do you have in your bad eye? Having vision on only one side would take a bit of adjusting to (OH has obviously known nothing different for most of his life, but even so his spatial awareness can be a bit 'out' sometimes and he has to be really careful when reverse parking for example) and as you're all grown up it would take a while for your brain to adjust properly. However, as the Cupster says, with a falsie you wouldn't feel so self-conscious any more.
