Hong Kong doctor offers implants to eye-gouged boy
HONG KONG (AFP) - A six-year-old Chinese boy who had his eyes gouged out by a woman believed to be his aunt may one day see again after a Hong Kong hospital offered him "electronic eyes".
Hong Kong-based eye expert Dennis Lam said his team would provide the treatment for free to Guo Bin - known as Bin-Bin - who was found covered in blood near his home in the northern Chinese province of Shanxi last month after the horrific attack.
Lam said that future technology could restore up to 40 per cent of the boy's lost vision.
"When I heard about it. I was really angry, very upset. I was asking myself if I can help," Lam said.
