Who knew that losing an eye and getting a prosthesis could be so fascinating? Me, Myself and Eye: The Realities of Living with a Prosthetic Eye, by Cynthia Lee De Boer, tells her story simply and straight-forwardly, including using medical jargon and then explaining what it means.
Perhaps you or someone you know suffers from an eye condition and he or she is fearful or uncertain about what to do next or what might happen in the future. I can relate to that because Cynthia De Boer and I have something in common.
A very open look into the life of someone going through a life changing experience at a young age and the positive outlook to have after. A great read and it will make you feel good about life and the people in it.
Ms. De Boers’ saga begins shortly after birth, continues throughout her vulnerable teenage years, and is ongoing even today. She shares her story, bouncing between horror and humor.
With 50,000 Americans being declared legally blind every year, this little book is a must read. Cynthia gives an informative, insightful glimpse into the tragedy of losing an eye as a teenager, and finding “wholeness” with a prosthesis.
