Chinese baby born without eyes

May be suffering from a disease

A woman in China has given birth to a baby boy with no eyes as he is believed to be suffering from a disease.

Liu Peihua gave birth on September 20 to a boy who was born with no eye tissue, according to Britain’s Metro newspaper.

It is believed the baby has Anophthalmia which affects one in 100,000 babies, the paper said, adding that Peihua is now seeking specialist treatment for her son.

The boy has been dubbed ‘the baby with no eyes’ by Chinese press which reported that there had been no indication prior to his birth that he had the condition.

The family is now looking to the future and hope that charities can help with planning their son’s future.
