A rare medical disorder, called the Tessier Cleft, has caused a boy to be born with no eyes, and only skin covering the sockets of his eyes.
The boy, Marwanijung, is extremely happy just shining a torch on his left eye. Medical investigation revealed that the boy had an eye under the skin of his left socket. But doctors are unable to remove the skin as the eye below has no lens.
