August Alsina Undergoes Eye Surgery to Save His Vision [PHOTO]
Is August Alsina going blind? The R&B crooner is going through a medical emergency with his eyesight. Apparently, Alsina has an eye disease that has left him blind in one eye and degenerating vision in his right.
On Friday (May 15), the New Orleans native went on Instagram to inform his fans that he’s battling an eye disease. Thankfully, the “I Luv This” singer is undergoing treatment in hopes to fully regain his eyesight. In the photo, you can see Alsina getting his eyes zapped with a green lazer.
"So I have this eye disease.. Blind in my left, and losing vision in my right," he writes in the caption. "In order to prevent my eyesight from deteriorating I had to do this surgery. This s--- is beyond painful & Life be throwin' a n---- curve balls but what I've gained from it all is priceless."
Alsina ends his missive with telling his fans to be appreciative of what they have and what they can see in life. The 22-year-old singer adds that he's now grateful that he can now see everything that comes his way whether it's good, bad or ugly.
We are very happy to see that Alsina is on the road to recovery. He's been through a lot within the past year. Last September, the singer was in a three-day coma after collapsing onstage and having multiple seizures in the hospital.
Get well, August Alsina.
