    Madam Zhang lost her right eye when a man splashed acid on her face during a robbery attempt in Johor Baru in 2007. She underwent a cornea transplant surgery in Malaysia for her remaining left eye which later developed a serious infection. Despite several repeat operations and medical treatment, doctors in Malaysia were not able to control her infection. She came to Singapore to seek treatment at a public hospital but this was unsuccessful as well. She finally went to Dr Leonard Ang for help to save her eye. Following surgery and treatment by Dr Ang, the infection eventually subsided.
