She can now see brightly coloured flowers after two eye operations

Now, after two eye operations, the 12-year-old student can discern shapes and people from up to 6m away.

The sight which most excites her is the garden beside her five-room flat at Punggol.

“I can see the brightly coloured flowers on the plants, and their branches and leaves,” said Adelyn, who was born with a rare congenital eye disease.

She made the news last year when she and her mother came up with the idea of selling CDs of her piano compositions to raise about $80,000 for eye operations, and they managed to do so in six weeks.
