2016: Year of the Eye

It’s now 5 years, almost, since my enucleation and ocular prosthetic being made.

My health is great, scans and follow-ups all show no recurrence of cancer, no mets and all that stuff that could appear.

Now that I am living in a new area the search begins not only for a professional to craft my new prosthetic eye but to find the funding to help pay for it.

Luckily the Ontario government has an Assistive Devices Program (I hope it’s still active) that pays up to 75% of the cost. The first eye cost over $2,000.00.

The challenge is ahead to get this done sooner rather than later since I don’t know the process. Wish me well.
