- "Wear an eye patch. If you have double vision, using an eye patch can help relieve this problem."
Going out into public while wearing an eye patch isn’t easy. Truthfully, sometimes an eye patch turns into a rude comment magnet.
- Is it Halloween already?
- Ahoy there matey.
- Have ye seen Cap’n Jack? Tell him I be looking for him.
- Do you have a parrot?
- Are you really a pirate?
So, how do you stay incognito while patching an eye? I’ve found covering one of my glasses lenses with Vaseline helps. A thin coating of Vaseline is enough to occlude vision in one eye, but from a distance no one can tell. It also washes off easily, so you can blur the other lens and give your eye a rest. If you don’t wear prescription glasses you can get glasses with clear lenses in them here.
Oh, and by the way, of course I be a real pirate! Shiver me timbers it's time for a mug o’grog!
