While the loss of an ocular organ seems unlikely, given the nature of the gifts I received, one should never discount human ingenuity.
Anyway, here's what I got from various friends, family, and other assorted well-wishers:
Return to Cookie Mountain by TV on the Radio
A biographical work on Thomas More, statesman, philosopher, and Catholic bigot
A book on the Somme and another on Ancient Rome
A nice pen
A Star Wars lego tie fighter (the one Vader flies in Star Wars)
