Re:glass eye?



in WWI Brigadier Carton de Wiart was refused another command until he got a glass eye. He got one, got his command, threw away the eye, wore a patch, and got away with it. His bio is "Happy Odyssey. Quite a fellow.


Re:glass eye?



I don't have a glass eye. I have A prostatic eye made out of plastic like material. sort of like you take a pieces of plastic out after you draw the eye and bend it like a curve. then. I have a pi eg in the muscle of the eye that the curved plastic eye fits in. and the eye actually moves and looks like the other eye. amazing technology they got today. you can't even tell. i got an artifical eye. The guy that maded it even hand paints them.
