For young Yang—who is now a kindergarten teacher—life was never smooth sailing since she was little. Her childhood was filled with gray and blurry memories, as she suffered from amblyopia, a vision-development disorder—also known as lazy eye—in which one eye fails to achieve normal visual acuity. However, after 18 years of Yang suffering from the condition, a set of events helped restore her health.
Plagued With Eye Disorder
Recalling her painful childhood incident, Yang told Minghui.org that once her elementary school teacher showed them how to distinguish $5 and $10 bills.
“I couldn’t tell the difference at all,” the 31-year-old Yang said. “I couldn’t get the ball while bouncing it. That was when my parents found out that I had weak eyesight.”
