She has been producing them ever since.Liang claims that no doctors have been able to explain the bizarre phenomena, and says that every time he goes to hospital, they treat him as if he and his wife are crazy.
After it was removed, she was okay for a while but then he had found another stone.
The hard, silvery white stones are difficult to remove.
He said he needed to use a wire to ease them out, and claims to have gathered 10 of the small stones produced in his wife's eye socket.
Liang, who is a farmer in Lufang village in Heze city in East China’s Shandong Province, said that despite going all over the country looking for treatment, doctors usually refuse to accept that he and his wife are telling the truth.
He said: "They treat us as if we are mental cases."
After the latest stone, instead of going to medics her husband turned to the media, and he showed one of the stones in his wife’s eye socket to convince them of the problem.
He said: "It is incredibly painful this problem with her eyes, her health is perfectly normal."
Journalists who then accompanied the couple to hospital admitted they were baffled as to what the possible explanation might be, and the report has now gone viral in China.
