Rumble A couple are adjusting to the realities of raising a blind child after their beautiful baby was born -- without eyes.

Nicole Martinez, 25, and her fiancé Kalani Prior, 34, were heartbroken to discover that their son Jackson did not have a left eye socket during their 32-week scan.

But it wasn’t until he was born that doctors realized that the 7lb12oz newborn was completely blind as his right eye had also not developed as it should.

As well as the defects, baby Jackson was born with an enlarged valve in his heart and was rushed to the NICU as soon as he was delivered on April 9.
