Fixing Sun glare?

I have fabulous picture of my grandmother but unfortunately there is a bit of sun glare over one of her eyes...I have uploaded the picture as a DNG to save as much info as possible so you could see it...here it is...

My Grandmother's picture

I'm not sure how to go about getting rid of the glare. I have the picture in Raw Format and none of it is totally blown out so I think it could be saved.. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks in advance for any advice!!!

Namaste,
Kristen

I would try opening the photo in photoshop and creating a new layer, change blending mode to color, use eyedroper to select a color you want close to the area where the glare is and paint over that area. selecting different areas of the face next to the glare.

I would follow unimatrix001 advice plus use some D&B technique & High Pass to recover some texture.

Re: Fixing Sun glare?

I had a go at this copying the circle of light then used selective colour , brightness /contrast and hue/sat then a bit of cloning to tidy up.I had to copy twice because of different hues in the glare but overall not bad repair.
