Poke an eye out?

I’m sure I owe my fascination with glass eyes to my grandfather, who lost an eye when he worked on the railroads and had a glass replacement. His visits meant nervously brushing my teeth while keeping my eye on his, staring out at me from its glass of water on the bathroom counter. I found this beautiful photo essay by Marc Steinmetz about the process of making glass eyes.
