How well do you see out of that eye? Is the scar on the iris or on the cornea?

I am bilnd in this eye with no hope of sight restoration,due to extinsive nerve damage,from a Cryogenic freeze done to eleviate pain and lower gloucomic pressure,and also laser surgery for the same reasons,baring a miricle from "God" the best I can hope for good eye health and at least a better appearence!!!!!!!

Thank you for the additional information. You have two options that do not require surgery.

1. If that eye is of normal size, you can consider a brown colored contact lens.

2. If it smaller in size (or in a pre-phthisis), then you can consider getting fitted for an ocular prosthesis. These are fit by an ocularist who paints onto an acrylic shell the exact pattern of your normal eye. The movement of the acrylic shell may be limited, however.
