    Ok...I just had to do a bit of researching to figure out exactly how this procedure works....The pictures are pretty gruesome looking but a "cosmetic shell" is put on the eye when all is said and done. I'll attach the website that explains...if anyone is interested...it is really fascinating!!

    Oh no you didn't. That was funny, HMJ! Meanwhile simply amazing. Czech very interesting although I ain't viewing no pictures. I can look at a socket. Ya know minus an eye, but no eyeballs. That's really cool for this poor man.
