MA is a 9-month-old Mongolian girl was born prematurely with 1.7 kilogram birth weight. She received supplemental oxygen for an extended period of time. Her mother stated that her daughter would not look at her face and that her eyes “wandered back and forth.” She had been told at the government hospital that cataract surgery could be attempted but “there might be some complications,” so she sought another opinion when she heard that some Japanese eye doctors were visiting a local clinic.
