Accidents can happen any time. One day you can find yourself just simply going back home from a long day from school, and next thing you know, an injury happens that changes your life.
This is a story of an Artificial Eye user from the Philippines who lost one of his eye due to an accident caused by a fishing hook hitting the eye.
One day, he just arrived home after a long day at school, when he was told to fetch his brother for dinner, who was near the river fishing. Just when he saw about to reach his brother, it was also the time when his brother casted the fishing hook, which directly punctured his eye, resulting to it being removed by an Ophthalmologist.
My only regret, as an Artificial Eye Maker, was that I wasn't able to make his Prosthetic Eye in time. Hoping that I could've prevented him from dropping out from school, and saving him from the bullying
Kakauwi ko galing ng school. Pinatawag ni mama si kuya para kumain at ako naman ay dali dali ko siyang hinanap. Kung saan saan ko siya pinuntahan. Hangang sa may nakapag sabi na naroon daw siya sa palaisdaan.
At nung nakita ko siya doon, papalapalit palang sana ako sakanya ay bigla nyang hinagis ang hawak nyang pamingwit at sa di mapaliwanag na dahilan sa mata ko pa tumama ang pamingwit ni kuya kaya dahil dun ay nabulag ang isa kong mata.
Magmula nang mabulag ang isa kong mata ay marami nagbago sa buhay ko. Lagi na akong binubully sa school halos araw araw ako tinutukso.
Kaya naisipan ko nalang huminto ng pag aaral. Magmula noon ay mahiyain na ako at madalang nalang ako lumabas ng bahay.
Isang araw ay pinuntahan ako ng ate ko at sinabihan ako na mayroong gumagawang Artificial Eye. kinabukasan agad naman kame pumunta.
Masaya ako na maganda ang nagiging resulta. Nakakapanibago. Marami din ang nakakapansin sa bago kong mata.
Sa ngayon ay medyo hindi na ako Mahiyain tulad ng dati dahil dito sa Artificial Eye ko.
Sana marami pang matulungan si Doc Mark Paroli ng tulad ko.
