It would seem that in order to create paintings in a realistic manner, every artist must have excellent vision. But in fact this is not the case. History knows many examples when great artists, who perfectly master complex visual techniques, suffered from serious eye diseases. For example, Degas, because of his poor eyesight, was not even taken as a volunteer in the infantry and he had to serve in an artillery regiment. The famous Russian artist Mikhail Vrubel in the second half of his life also had very serious problems with his eyes.

Pakaila emphasizes that despite her peculiarity, she has never been an outsider, but still leads a rather secluded life. Unfortunately, heavy glasses can create a significant barrier between a person and the outside world. Pakaila's character is very independent, and she tries in every possible way to prove her own independence to herself and others.
