Very Unhappy Eye…

This is injury caused from over wear of rigid contact lenses. If you look carefully you can see the indentation where the lens was  stuck to and slightly embedded in the surface of the cornea. The bright white spot at 3 o’clock is broken-down epithelium, also known as a corneal ulcer. This can cause permanent vision impairment by scarring. All the glowing yellow dye is sodium fluorescein, a salt that is absorbed by broken down tissues and dead skin cells and glows under cobalt blue light. This is generally a painful condition and can prevent the patient from ever successfully wearing contact lenses again.

A wandering, wondering dreamer, Roberta Mander was born with questions in her eyes. She has since sought answers to her questions through many lenses.

As an ophthalmic medical technician she learned the importance of enhancing others' view of the world.

As a pilot, poet, writer and adventurer she surveyed her world from inside, outside, above and beyond before injuries brought her back to earth.

Through her work in photography, Robbie says she is moving "from disability to possibility".
