Dad Transforms Daughter's Eye Patch into a New Work of Art—Every Day

The Short of It

A dad creates beautiful works of art out of the eye patches his daughter has to wear.


The Lowdown

Some parents would've been devastated when they found out their child was born with a cataract and had to wear an eye patch every day for vision correction, but not Geof Grubb. He draws unique designs on the patches Layla must cover her left eye with for two hours daily.

That means every single day, Grubb finds a new inspiration. Featuring everything from Disney characters, like Olaf and Elsa from Frozen, to freehand drawings of rainbows and castles. I can only imagine how thrilled little Layla is when her father unveils each day's patch.

This amazing dad explained on Reddit that he just tries to make the best out of his daughter's situation. I'll say! Grubb has even created an Instagram account to showcase his patches. The photos highlighted there are truly impressive and feature Kermit the Frog, Gonzo, Mulan, Mrs. Potts from Beauty and the Beast, Van Gogh's "Starry Night," and even an Academy Award.


The Upshot

Besides the truly impressive drawings, what I love most about this dad's efforts is that he is making his little girl smile. She looks truly happy in the images on Instagram.

What Grubb did also serves as a wonderful example for other parents of kids who must go through life a little differently. You don't have to despair; instead, create beauty where it might not otherwise exist. A sickness or challenge can become an empowering, fun, and happy part of life for your child if you just shift your thinking, as this father did.
