To the Internet’s delight, a Chicago-area father is turning his infant daughter’s medical condition into an opportunity for whimsy.

Every day, Geoff Grubb draws a fun picture or design on a medical eyepatch for his daughter Layla. She has a small cataract in her left eye and doctors have instructed her to wear an eyepatch for two hours daily to encourage healthy visual development. She’s been wearing them since she was eight months old, and she may have to keep doing so until her fifth birthday.
