Richie Lopez parents are still hopeful that he will surely see after they discover that their baby is without eyes.

The lads mum Kelly Lopez who was stunned to discover that the reason her baby could not open his eyes was because he didn't have any eyes which is an extremely rare condition called anophthalmia.

Initially the doctors thought his eyelids would not open because his face was swollen

He was eventually diagnosed with anophthalmia in an MRI scan 13 days after he was born at Banner Desert Medical Center, in Arizona, US.

Mrs Lopez "By the time we left, I think every single nurse had cried with us," she told KTLA.

Mrs Lopez and her husband are optimistic that with advances in science Richie - who is now three months old - will one day be able to see.

She added: "I do hold out hope, I know that researchers are testing it and doing what they can, but I do hope that, one day, they'll be able to grow an eye or transplant an eye.'

For now, the couple is helping their son with special toys and development programs.
