Dear Mr. Brady,
I was looking through my copy of your 5th edition of, A Singular
View, and once again realized just how much it helped me
in 1996 when I lost my right eye at the age of forty-two to
cancer. I went on to become a paramedic-firefighter, and still
serve my community today. I wanted to let you know that I am
lending my copy to a friend whom recently lost her eye, I just
know, it will help her, as it did me.
Deborah B., Lusy, Maryland.

"Frank Brady's book, A
Singular View, is truly an eye-opener; no humor intended.
People with binocular vision, myself among them, are blissfully
unaware of the alarming difficulties faced daily after just

of writing is comforting and optimistic."

"This is perhaps the single
best source of information for those who have lost sight in
one eye, as well as for anyone who must lend support to, or
who simply wants to better understand the unique challenges
and opportunities of, those facing life with a 'singular view.'
Mr. Brady is uniquely qualified
to write such a book. As someone who is both a scientist and
practitioner of the "art of seeing with one eye,"
he has reviewed and clearly explained things both technical
and deeply personal. The result is a book that is educational,
compassionate, and even entertaining--and one that should be
read by anyone affected by the loss of vision in one eye."
San Diegeo, CA.

depth perception subject and is must reading for the new prosthetic

Dear Mr. Brady:
I have a copy of your book, "A Singular View", at my office and have found it very valuable. I work for the Texas Commission for the Blind as a Children's Caseworker. Each year I have several children who for some reason have a serious problem with just one eye. Many of these children have a serious eye injury.
I thoroughly enjoyed your book and would appreciate it if you would let me know how I could obtain additional copies to distribute to my clients.

to compensate. The Degree of his success may be measured by
the fact that he is able to fly an airplane again, drive a car,

Members of the "one eyed community" find very little literature of practical use to them in learning to live with their handicap (or as Frank Brady says, their "inconvenience"). This excellent volume fills the need admirably.
His story and his advice cannot but give a great lift to those experiencing the same difficulty.

A copy of the book, "A Singular View" was passed to me by Colonel
Ed Huyck at OSD.
This is an excellent how-to-do-it book, set in large type and written in simple, non-technical language, explaining to the individual who has recently lost sigh of an eye the many ways in which he can cope with a world oriented to people who have ordinary binocular vision. This ranges from such ordinary activities as restaurant dining to the more ambitious but less likely attempts at flying an airplane a la Wiley Post.
I recommend that it be in the library of every military hospital as well as every VA, USPHS, and civilian hospital that has a library.

I recently lost the vision in my right eye and was given a copy of your book, "A Singular View". I found it both interesting and helpful. Especially useful to me was the explanation of exactly what I've lost (such as depth perception). I found that recognizing the problems made them much easier to deal with.
my New year's resolution- to thank you ever so much for your
superb treasure; "A Singular View". I thought that
I had mastered the art of seeing with one eye until I read your
book and discovered many small, but important things to do.
