My mother’s first cousin, Dr. Henry Abrams, was Albert Einstein’s ophthalmologist and friend. The morning after Einstein’s death on April 18, 1955, Dr. Abrams removed the eyes from Einstein’s corpse. “The Way I See It” is an exploration of the legacy of this decision by the adult who was haunted and disturbed when learning of it as a young child. Until his death in November 2011, Henry Abrams retained the eyes in a jar in his dresser drawer.
