Baby born with no eyes – but girl’s mum refused abortion and says she is ‘gorgeous’

Daisy has the rare condition anophthalmia, but 24-year-old mum Danielle Davis is determined to treat her just like any other baby.

A mum whose baby girl was born with no eyes is determined to give her a normal childhood.Danielle Davis, 24, refused a termination when a routine scan showed her baby Daisy had a cyst on the brain.When the girl was born doctors confirmed she had anophthalmia, a birth defect which affects just one in 10,000 babies.

The disability is triggered when the tissue which makes up a child’s eyes fails to form in the womb, leaving empty sockets.

Care worker Danielle, who is raising Daisy with her partner Andrew Smith, 31, said: “It was a shock – we had never heard of it before.

“But she is our gorgeous baby and we have no regrets about turning down a termination.
