eBook: Stories of Eye Loss

Paul and Jenny Geelen, Artificial Eyes - Stories of Eye Loss
We have collected stories from a range of our clients who have lost an eye and are willing to share their experiences with others. The eBook is available for individual use free of charge for a limited period, and we also offer a licensed version for Surgeries or Hospitals.

If you are coping with eye loss, these stories may help for different reasons:

  • you no longer feel so alone.
  • you can be comforted and inspired by the positive recovery of others.
  • you can find out what life can be like with an artificial eye.
  • you can enjoy the humour that some people have chosen to make a part of their response.
  • you can get a picture of your own positive future.

As one of our clients said

“When I heard that there were stories from people who had also been through eye loss I had to read them. After I read them, I knew I would be alright.”

Stories of Eye Loss is available online

Stories of Eye Loss is available in e-book form, as a PDF document. So you can download the eBook and read it on your computer, or print it out.

If you are a family member supporting someone dealing with eye loss in hospital, you might print it out and take it to them.
