Having undergone 7 months of surgical treatment, Let has improved her previous blurry vision and rebuilt her beautiful right year, completing the treatment for that stage.

Pou Chen Group Chairman Lu-Ming Zhan expressed his pleasure to see Let becoming happier each day and that she could recover her happy life, which makes everything worthwhile.
