An Australian woman is blind three days out of every six because her eyes involuntarily shut and she cannot open them, a report has said.
The woman's mysterious medical condition has left doctors puzzled.
Natalie Adler, who experts believe may be the only person in the world with this condition, said she has had this medical predicament since she was 17.
"She's a one-off and we don't have a diagnosis," said Professor Justin O'Day of the hospital's neuro-ophthalmology department.
"It's unusual to see somebody with this degree of spasming and eyelid closure, especially at this age. There is no known cause."
