A girl who nearly lost sight in one eye is marking the end of her patch-wearing days in a superhero-themed photo session.
Aliyah Arambul's shoot was styled by her mom, Jessie Arambul, of Pasco, Washington. The 5-year-old wounded her left eye in 2017, after accidentally snapping it with an exercise band she found outside.
"I asked who she wanted to be and she said, 'a superhero,'" Arambul told "Good Morning America." "I got emotional because it's been a long journey. That was the last time she took off her patch."
After her injury, Aliyah was brought to the eye doctor who found her iris was filled with blood, according to Arambul. She was then taken to Oregon Health & Science University Hospital in Portland, Oregon, which transferred the child to the Casey Eye Institute.
