When he was 4 years old, he experienced bilateral retinal detachment. Surgery was performed, but he re-detached. Then his parents took him to other hospitals and received some additional management, but was left with complicated bilateral retinal detachments.

Then the parents learned about stem cells and decided to receive stem cell treatment (SCT). The first two stem cell treatment proved to be helpful and a lot of improvement was made in terms of the vision of his left eye: he can see big letters and vowels on the computer monitor with his left eye. His right eye was light-perception only.
