This little girl is rocking the hell out of her customized eyepatches

Meet 1-year-old Layla Grubb.

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.

“Her eyesight is actually very good, she doesn’t have a lazy eye or anything like that. Her doctor is very happy with her development so far,” Grubb told local station KDSK. “It was easy to come up with ideas at first but it’s gotten harder because I don’t want to repeat designs. I have a running list that my wife and family help me with. I’m always open to new cute ideas, though.”

Grubb’s eyepatch artwork typically features pop culture references, such as sports logos and Nintendo characters.

Grubb’s artwork first got noticed online when he posted some early photos on Reddit five months ago. Response was so positive that he started the Layla’s Patches Instagram page to share them daily.

He has, of course, found a way to tip his hat to the Reddit community via eyepatch:
