I just found this story on CNN via the Bright Eyes blog. It’s about glasses and eye patches for kids. They talk about the Bjort & Company’s “Eye Patch Kid” video. I love the story about how the video came to be – their 2 year old son was resisting eye patches until he saw a pirate video, at which point he tried to put on the eye patch by himself. It confirms my longstanding belief that pirates really do make everything better. In any case, this led to the idea of making a video to help make wearing glasses and eye patches more fun. The article continues to talk about kids and contacts and LASIK surgery, neither of which I’m ready to even begin thinking about right now.
As an aside, Bjort & Company also have kids’ shirts and accessories for kids with glasses or eye patches (also others for kids with food allergies).
