|In this 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)
"What makes these observations so important is that the way you look may not be nearly as important as the way you think you look to others." (102)
