Cyclopia is an extreme malformation of the external & internal structure of the head. It can not be treated or cured. The brain is so radically reduced and simplified that there is no way to "repair" it. It had never grown properly to begin with. In typical Cyclopia, there is but one eyeball in the middle of the face (?). The brain is not divided into hemispheres and is missing many components. In addition, the nose,if not absent altogether, is a proboscis that is unconnected to the throat. The bones of the face serve wholly different functions than normally (eye orbit made of nasal bones, for example.). It is inconceivable to even think of treating cyclopia. The "baby" doesn't live long -fortunantly, rumors of such -creatures- surviving and even reaching adulthood notwithstanding. (one said to be living in seclusion and not wanting to see anybody lest it be some sideshow agent coming to exploit him).

Can cyclopia be cured?

NO.Typically, the face is either missing or replaced with a non-functioning nose in the form of a proboscis. Such a proboscis generally appears above the central eye, or on the back, and is characteristic of a form of cyclopia called rhinencephaly or rhinocephalyMost such embryos are either naturally aborted or are stillborn upon delivery.Although cyclopia is rare, several cyclopic human babies are preserved in medical museums (e.g. The Vrolik Museum, Amsterdam).Some extreme cases of cyclopia have been documented in inbred farm animals (horses, sheep, pigs, and sometimes chickens). In such cases, the nose and mouth fail to form, or the nose grows from the roof of the mouth obstructing airflow, resulting in suffocation shortly after birth.
