And what happened to the eye patch as well?

Under the latest disability regulations eye patches worn as theatrical props are now considered to be demeaning to partially sighted persons & have consequently been banned.

Whoops. My goof!

Q: Did Nelson wear an eye patch

A: Nelson lost the sight of his right eye in 1794, but since the eye was not removed and appeared externally normal, there was no need to cover it with a patch. After 1801, he wore a green eye shade above his eyes to shield the good eye from sunlight. Contemporary portraits of Nelson generally show him with both eyes uncovered and none show a patch over his sightless eye.
