Eyes Win Vote of Confidence

We are very happy to co-operate when journalists approach us to do a story about our work.

This was the case with the Sunday Times who published an article about us yesterday.

We see each story as a valuable opportunity to educate people that there is hope after the loss of eye.

It is not uncommon to meet people who had an eye made decades years ago and who have never got round to replacing it.

As the face changes over time it is often the case that an old prosthesis no long looks natural and it might even be causing irritation to the socket itself.

A newspaper story showing the face of someone happy with their new prosthesis can help these people come forward and have a new eye made.

This can make a dramatic difference to their appearance and level of confidence.

This is the reason why we are always happy to make time to speak to journalists. They help us take away the mystery that surrounds eye loss.

Information reduces fear and makes it a little easier for people to take the step of getting a natural looking prostheis for themselves.

This was the catalyst that made her question the sight in my right eye.
