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.
