Hall of Fame is a new category at Eyes Apart. I’ve already featured several famous people with strabismus on the site. I’m adding them to this category, and I plan to add more from time to time.
The photo on this page is a Rembrandt painting. I have featured him in the past using a self portrait that showed his strabismus. But I wanted to include a piece of his art in the Hall of Fame, so I thought it fitting to use it for the introduction to the new category. I’ve got several famous people in the lineup for the hall of fame already, but if you’d like to suggest a name or write a piece for the Strabismus Hall of Fame, you can email me here.
Many of you deserve special recognition also, and I’m glad to publish stories of non-famous people with strabismus. If you have an inspirational story to share about strabismus, you can email me also. But the Hall of Fame is reserved for famous people with strabismus. Those who have made it to fame in spite of their strabismus inspire us all to push for the top in whatever area we’re in. We may never be famous, and we may not even want to be, but we can be achievers and do our best, and that is what counts.
