Loving Father Creates Adorable Drawings on Daughter’s Eye Patch Every Day

Born with a small cataract, baby Layla was forced to wear a patch over her eye to make the other one stronger. Making light of a challenging issue, her father, Redditor Gfgrubb, starting drawing clever and creative drawings on her patch. After receiving a wave of internet support over the last few months, the loving dad created an Instagram page called laylaspatches, where they happily proclaim: “A new patch everyday!”

This project won't last forever, though. Layla may only need to wear the patch until she's four years old. “This should prevent a lazy eye and surgery if we're lucky,” Gfgrubb explains. Regardless, the father and daughter will have a fun and creative project that they'll always be able to look back on and remember fondly.
