Although there is a rare medical condition that can lead to so-called & # 39; crystal tears & # 39 ;, experts think that Kazaryan suffers from Munchausen syndrome, a type of mental disorder that leads people to fake disease and self-injury, often as a way to attention.
Kazaryan and her mother-in-law Zemfira Mikaelyan insist that the & # 39; glass tears & # 39; be natural.
But professor Anna Hovakimyan, from the Armenian Republican Ophthalmic Center, claimed that the & # 39; crystal tears & # 39; probably made of glass.
She said: & # 39; The crystals look like ordinary glass. I am almost 100 percent sure that the patient suffers from Munchausen's syndrome. & # 39;
Although there is a genetic condition called Cystinosis, leading Moscow eye specialist Professor Dmitry Maichuk said: "The formation of such crystals is theoretically possible, but they must be smaller and injure the eye."
During tests on the & # 39; tears & # 39 ;, experts tested them through the & # 39; crystals & # 39; scratch on a glass object
Professor Anna Hovakimyan is watching a video about removing crystals from the eye of Kazaryan. She claims that the crystals are just glass
If large crystals formed naturally, it would take several months, not a matter of hours as she claims, he said.
A team from the Russian television station NTV brought some of the crystals from Kazaryan to gemologist Olga Radionova, who said the examples & # 39; simple glass & # 39; goods.
The TV crew went to the remote village where Kazaryan lives and they were told that the crystals were first seen after her five-year-old son Vanik broke a glass vase.
A piece fell into her eye, it was claimed and later more glass appeared that her mother-in-law continued to remove.

The woman had previously claimed that the crystals mentioned after a visit to the dentist.
Cystinosis is a metabolic disorder that is caused by gene mutations, but it can be treated with medication.
Such treatment, however, did not work for Kazaryan. She claimed that her condition deteriorated when she took medication.
Armenian Deputy Health Minister Oganes Arutyunyan said the woman's case was being investigated to find out what is going on with the patient & # 39 ;.
