Eye Talk

MrsGeeding.jpegAs many of you know, wifeGeeding has only one eye.  Well, she has two, but one of them is made out of glass.  I’ve always been proud of her on how open she is talking about it, how it has never really stopped her from doing anything, and her cool attitude at poking fun at it.  I think she likes to educate people.

Long story short, she was born blind in that eye, later the retina was detached and glaucoma got the best of it, and it was removed at a very young age, kindergarten I think.  There’s a cute story about the doctor telling her how he was going to make her the prettiest blue eye, and she snaps back at him saying she wants a brown eye to match.

So why am I telling you this? Well, because her glass-eye doctor asked her to speak to a mother who’s child is about to receive a glass-eye.  I’m not a parent, but I can imagine how stressful of a situation this can be and can only admire my in-laws for how they assessed this with a very young wifeGeeding.  I just thought it was really cool that he would ask my wife to do this, and may God allow her to speak to this mother and child in a calming yet confident voice.

Interested in some glass-eye stuff?

Well, here is a video of wifeGeeding removing her eye.

Here is a picture of it.

Here is a picture of an empty ocular cavity.

And here are two news articles about having one eye:
