At present, the patient's right eye is solely able to distinguish black and white color and the visual field is only limited to bitemporal area. His right eye can perceive finger in 30cm away but cannot count the number of fingers. In 50cm away, he can only perceive the shape of big objects. Since the onset of disease, he had normal diet and does not have very good sleep. He has normal urination and defecation every day. He has no family history of this disease.

The left eyeball was absent, and other part of the body's skin was intact, with no ecchymosis, petechia or yellow stains on skin. The thorax was symmetrical.

The diameter of right pupil was 2.5mms and the pupil presented with grey white. The right eye had slow response to light stimulus. He was able to distinguish only black and white color. His right eye remained only temporal visual field. He could see fingers from 30cm distance but he was unable to distinguish the number of fingers. He could feel the outline of big objects from 50cm's distance.
Under ophthalmoscope (right eye): eye fundus was dark red color. The optic nerve head was in a pale white color. The border of optic nerve head was clear.

We initially gave Navarro Montilla Jorge Enrique a complete examination and the diagnosis was confirmed. He received treatment for nerve regeneration for his retina optic nerves. He received treatment to activate his own stem cells. He also got treatment to improve the blood circulation in order to increase the blood supply and nutrition to the neurons.
