RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Just days after calling 12 for help getting an artificial eye, we are happy to report that Iris Reilly-Moore is on her way to looking normal again.
Iris came to us in tears. She had no insurance or money to pay for it, but since our story last Tuesday, a local doctor has stepped in to help.
Iris was looking for information when she called me. She thought perhaps On Your Side knew of an organization, she was unaware of, that could help. She did not expect to meet the ocularist who agreed to make her artificial eye.
It's amazing how hope transforms the human spirit. For Iris Reilly-Moore - whose right eye was amputated because of a condition called Stickler's Syndrome - just getting examined for a prosthetic eye is hopeful.
Meantime, Eye Care International is looking for doctors to volunteer - although anyone is welcome.
