Dad Draws Adorable Eye Patch Designs for His Daughter Everyday

What started as a doctor-prescribed method to cure his daughter’s cataract has turned into a daily piece of art for Geoff Grubb. His 18-month-old daughter, Layla, was born with a small cataract in her left eye and has to wear a corrective eye patch for two hours every day.

32-year-old stay-at-home dad Geoff says, “Patching every day can be frustrating for me, so this helps to make it fun and it keeps me committed. We bought some plain eye patches and I thought they were a little depressing so this was my way of making it more fun, especially for me.”

Doctors have not given a definite timeline for Layla’s treatment but she may have to wear these eye patches till she turns five.

Her father says, “Her eyesight is actually very good, she doesn’t have a lazy eye or anything like that. Her doctor is very happy with her development so far.”

After receiving a good response on Reddit, Geoff started chronicling his daughter’s eye patches on Instagram. One of the patches is also dedicated to the Reddit community.

In an interview about his efforts, Geoff told Today, “It was easy to come up with ideas at first but it’s gotten harder because I don’t want to repeat designs. I have a running list that my wife and family help me with. I’m always open to new, cute ideas though.”

18-month-old Layla doesn’t like the patches, but that’s probably because she can’t see her father’s awesome designs on them. However, her father has a favourite and it’s the patch inspired by Calvin and Hobbes, a cartoon he enjoyed when he was a kid.

Geoff hasn’t saved any of the patches because he says they look pretty worn after a couple of hours. But we are sure his daughter will love the pictures of these eye patches when she grows up.
