RIGHT EYE TURNED OUT
LEFT EYE TURN OUT

My hospital bands
I grew up ripping off non-colorful, bland eye patches that were extremely sticky and uncool. I should have thought of Left Eye from TLC and kept the patch on but as a little girl looking like a pirate and saying ARRRG!!! was not appeasing. My mother would make me wear it and I would rip it off, ball it up and throw it on the floor; it was absolutely annoying. But that was apart of being the $100,000 baby with a long medical history. That is Precious. I never understood what the patch was for nor did I care to ask. All I knew was that it interrupted me. So fast-forward twenty years later after broken eye glasses and ripped up patches here I am getting ready for tomorrows 8a.m. surgery at the Children's Surgery Center in Maitland, FL. I have scheduled this surgery three times prior; once when I was a few months old, then when I was in middle school and when I was sixteen in high school. As a baby, I think my mom was not fond of it and in middle school there was an incident with a patient at the Valhalla hospital. There was an accident with the surgery equipment; a metal product hit the equipment and it caused the equipment to malfunction. At the age of sixteen the doctor informed me that I would have a black eye and I truthfully didn't feel like it was necessary to have the surgery. Now, at the age of twenty I am tired of taking sideways pictures, people asking am I really looking at them, or their confused facial expressions wondering what am i looking at and the infamous eye switching. It used to be only the left eye turning out but as I grew older the eyes would alternate in being turned out. I can actually flip it on and off but placing my hand on the so called "good eye" or straight eye. But when it flips and you can't see binocular vision and when it's hard to focus because you're peripheral is wider than the norm, it's a problem. So, it's not all about cosmetics for me, it;s about making my life a little bit easier down the road. There will be swelling but I have pollen allergies so I can take it. So wish me luck this is my first surgery ever; I'm a little frightened but I'll be fine.
