Haiti– Imagine having your eye stuck open for more than a year. No blinking, no shielding from the sun, not closing when you sleep. That’s what a Haitian man suffered, until a Florida doctor offered a solution, free of charge.
Imagine that this is all you can see. Ezechias Toussaint woke up that way one year ago. Ezechias says “While I’m washing my face I feel like this side is paralyzed.” Through the help of a translator, the Haitian native describes his pain, a paralyzed right eye with double vision and sudden loss of the ability to even blink.
