My Treasure – Anna Atcheson
‘My Eye Patch’
‘When I was born I had two lovely blue eyes, however when I was two years old my mammy took me to an optician, and to her surprise he told her that I had a squint in my right eye. I had to wear a patch on my left eye for an hour every day to correct my squint. At first I didn’t like wearing the patch because it was sticky and it made my eye itchy, however I soon got used to it. The patch made my eye stronger and after wearing it for approximately 3 years I was told I didn’t have to wear it anymore. I no longer have a squint so I’m glad I wore my patch’.
