A wooden leg and eye patch in reality would make you a terrible pirate

not so with the eye patch. eyepatches were actually worn, not because you were missing an eye, but because it preserved your night vision. When you went below decks, where it was very dark (lanterns being scarce because of the extreme risk of fire) you could flip the eyepatch up and immediately see what you were doing, instead of spending several minutes stumbling around in the dark running into things while your vision adjusted.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
