Bowling With An Artificial Eye

We’ve just picked up the brochures for the Arteyes WA Ten Pin Bowling afternoon. It is on the 19th July at Rosemount Bowl in North Perth.

I love this annual event as it makes the point that having an artificial eye doesn’t stop you playing sport and having fun with your family.

Last year we had ninety people of all ages bowling, sharing a huge picnic afternoon tea and getting to know other families who have experienced eye loss.

I was particularly pleased that several of our clients who are teenage boys got to bowl together. Having said that, I am pretty sure no one actually talked about having an artificial eye.

The benefit for everyone is to look around and realise that many people have shared this difficult experience.

The other benefit is realising that there is no way you can actually tell who has an artificial eye and who hasn’t.

I think this is a real boost to people’s confidence – particularly in teenage years when appearance is important.

If you don’t receive your invitation by Wedneday 9th July, then please give us a call or send an email.

Funny thing is that so many people would ask, “Can you see in that eye OK now?”
