These are so clever! And she loves wearing them! That's a double plus! My cousin had to have surgery on his eyes quite often throughout childhood to fix some things and he always had to wear those terrible bandaid patches. Life would have been easier if he had something awesome like these! Thanks for posting and sharing your story. Your daughter is beautiful btw! (and I love that she has a self proclaimed pirate name... VIVA LA CAPTAIN KITTY!!!)

That is sooo cute! I'm glad she likes them. Smiley

I love that the kitty patch has a patch on its eye! These are so cute and I'm glad she likes them!

I so wish I'd had these as a kid.  I had to wear eye patches for a few years as a kid, and they were these horrible neon sticky band aid things.  You're a great mom!  This rocks!

That is too cute and such a great way to help her feel more comfortable about it.  Grin

so adorable! and aren't you such a kick a$$ mom for making something potentially frustrating into something unique and really cute instead!

Do you say 'yes' to a single desire? Oh, my friends, then you say 'yes' to all pain.

Awesome idea!  I love that the kitty has an eye patch too.

this is a great idea, to turn something not good into somehting positive.. her accepting it and feeling 'hero' may help her (because of the pirate aRRRR thing I mean)..

I beliebe the kitty was more comfy for her since the size is more little than the bunny. maybe you come up with other models that are more tiny and comfy for her, or different cloth?

anyway, even Heidi Klum had an eyepatch because of an eyeillness!
