Case Discussion

One of many interesting images I have saved. The patient had been uncontactable to replace the eye, it had been in for 42 years and was prone to self destruct. The patient described hearing an explosion inside his head. He was the last remaining person to have one of these particular glass eyes. 
This film was taken in 1974.
