One-year-old Layla Grubb has the world's coolest dad. He has found a way to inject a little whimsy into what might otherwise be a mundane and potentially tantrum-inducing trial for his daughter.

Layla has a small cataract in one eye and needs to wear an eye patch. She wears the patch over the good eye to strengthen the eye with the cataract. Layla has to wear the patch every single day and as you can imagine, she doesn't love it. But her dad, Geof, makes the process more fun for everyone by making a custom patch each day for Layla to wear.

The designs for Layla's patches have so far included a Mutant Ninja Turtle, Wonder Woman, the old-school Apple logo and even googly eyes.

Layla has been wearing her custom patches for a few hours every day for the last eight months. And thankfully, her dad tells Mashable, her vision is getting stronger.

Geof posts a new photo every day to Instagram of Layla and her custom eye bling. His favorite so far has been the Calvin and Hobbes patch. Layla's favorite? According to her dad it's any patch that she gets to take off.
