Does Having An Artificial Eye Change Your Love Life?

Will I still be attractive?  Will any one want to marry me?    Thes are some of the major worries that people have when they lose an eye.

It is understandable that people feel that way.  Any sudden change in a physical appearance can have a dramatic effect on morale.

Any one who has had a pimple, a haircut, a black eye knows how self conscious such a change can make you feel.

For you it is the most obvious thing you see when you look in the mirror.  It can be a big surprise then when no one else notices.

A well fitted artificial eye does not not look like an artificial eye.  Mostly people would never know you are wearing an artificial eye unless you told them.

We have just published a new story called “I’ve Been Proposed To Five Times”  

In this story Frances tells us she was worried no one would want to marry her because of her artificial eye.

If you are worried about the effect of eye loss will have on your love life – you are not alone. Many people tell us they have this concern.  

Like Frances, these people have found that they needn’t have worried.
