Implants for boy after eyes gouged
A six-year-old Chinese boy whose eyes were gouged out by an attacker is receiving implants at a hospital in southern China after a Hong Kong eye doctor volunteered his service.
The implants are a precursor to fitting Guo Bin - known as Bin Bin - with prosthetic eyes that will look and move more like normal eyes, but which do not restore vision.
A personal assistant to Dr Dennis Lam Shun-Chiu said the surgery was being carried out at a private hospital in Shenzhen.
Police in the boy's home province of Shanxi have said they suspect his aunt gouged out his eyes, but have not identified a motive for last month's attack. The woman has since committed suicide.
Bin Bin and his family travelled to Shenzhen on Sunday.
