PATCHES FOR LAYLA
1 Two-year-old Layla has a small cataract in her right eye and wears a patch on her left two hours everyday. So her dad began LAYLASPATCHES and hand-draws each one. He started posting pictures on Instagram (@LaylasPatches) and now has 13,000 followers. To support Layla, they started a cute T-shirt shop. invmag.us/layla
