Entrepreneur and mother-Paige Brattin celebrates World Sight Day with her continued efforts to normalize patching, promote amblyopia awareness and give back to early detection organizations

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- World Sight Day – a daylong event intended to bring global attention

to blindness and vision impairment – will be celebrated on October 10th. Its theme this year: "Make Vision Count."

See Worthy Patches founder Paige Brattin is doing that by celebrating the cause and continuing to raise awareness for a mission that personally affects her. Brattin's first daughter, Eddy, was diagnosed with amblyopia – a disorder resulting in decreased eyesight due to abnormal visual development. It's typically detected during infancy and early childhood, and Eddy was required to wear an eye patch for several hours a day, which inspired the idea of See Worthy Patches.

"I made a promise to myself, God and the universe that if my baby girl came out on the right side of this diagnosis, I would dedicate my life to making this journey easier for all the other families who go through this," Brattin said.

And that is exactly what she is doing.

Brattin realized during her daughter's treatments that patches could be improved stylistically and functionally. She dedicated three years to developing more comfortable, creative patches that are visually appealing to kids -- insisting her product is the first that kids will actually want to wear.

Brattin is on the board for Project Vision Hawaii and volunteers for the Lions Club at local elementary school vision screenings. She structured her company so that a portion of its proceeds go toward these causes and is focused on creating additional awareness around amblyopia.

"I value honesty, integrity and good intentions," she said, "and I bring these values into every decision I make with See Worthy Patches".

See Worthy Patches plans to release new product boxes in early 2020 to continue to create awareness around patching and people who deal with eye disorders.
