One Seeing Eye
When only having “one seeing eye” for vision, it is imperative to protect it. The risk maybe small that you loose your one good eye, but the price if you do is life changing. Do not take the good vision of your one eye for granted. The largest safety issues are at home. Baby’s finger nails, garden accidents, cooking mishaps, home repairs, sports, auto accidents, air bags, paper cuts, wind and foreign items.
It is recommended for anyone who only has functional vision in one eye, that they wear glasses for safety 100% of the time. Today there is a vast array of spectacle frames to choose from, one to fit your style. The lens material that is the safest and lightest in weight is Polycarbonate with a 3.0 center thickness.
Please value your one seeing eye. Try walking around for a few minutes with your functional eye covered, and then ask yourself if you could function like this permanently.
It is typically not advised that any sort of elective surgery be performed, including laser corrective surgery, or contact lens wear due to possible risk of any further loss of vision in the seeing eye.
If this is a new event, please be careful in learning new one eyed skills. Driving, activities with depth perception, and night time vision, will all be influenced, so do these things slower and in a safer setting, until you are comfortable with your one eyed abilities.
