No Left Eyelid

A boy was born mostly healthy, but with a strange mutation that left him with no left eyelid. The doctors were a bit stunned at first, but called in a plastic surgeon to consult. They needed to figure out a way to protect and keep the eye moist, but how?

Finally the surgeon proposed an unorthodox idea: he suggested that if they circumcised the boy, they could fashion the foreskin into a serviceable eyelid.

The parents consented, and off they went to surgery. Two hours later, the plastic surgeon appeared, looking tired but fairly content.

"How did it go?" the parents asked with concern.

The surgeon replied, "Well, he's a bit cockeyed, but I don't think anyone will notice."
