Glass eyes have been made since the 1800s, and photographer Michaela Rehle has a kickass gallery up on Reuters of ocularist Gerhard Greiner’s work with glass-blown human eye prostheses. Every bespoke glass eye takes just one hour to make, right down to drawing in veins. Kind of spooky to look at these when they’re not beaming out of their human hosts’ eye sockets.
