chapter, Mr. Brady discusses something that for some may be the main concern following
damage to an eye: changes in personal appearance.
"If the damaged eye remains, there may be some change in appearance caused by the
two pupils not tracking precisely in unison. The eyes may seem perfectly aligned when
looking straight ahead, but diverge a bit when the good eye glances to one side.
The effect is usually not at all displeasing. In fact, most of us are intrigued by a
slight cast in a pleasant face--it seems to add a certain piquancy or individuality.
Indeed, Patrick Trevor-Roper, in his book The World Through Blunted Sight, notes
that earlier societies considered a squint a sign of godliness and beauty. He reminds us
that many great artist have gone so far as to portray their subjects with a decided squint
that they did not possess in real life." (pg. 101)
