According to her father, Layla was born with a small cataract that clouds the vision in her right eye. In order to help the injured eye develop correctly, she has to wear the patch over her strong eye for 2 hours everyday. The patching at this early age prevents ambylopia or the lazy eye disorder, where the vision in one eye does not fully develop during childhood.
As her father comments, Layla gets irritated quite easily while wearing the eyepatch, so it?s not that easy how it may look.
We can just hope that this little girl?s eye will get better soon. Kudos to her dad for finding an awesome way to make his daughter feel better.
