While August Alsina has been making major waves in music these last few years, he’s also been dealing with a serious eye disease that is affecting his vision. The disease already has the singer blind in his left eye, and his right quickly deteriorating.
Thankfully, Alsina underwent surgery that is meant to help regain his vision and ensure it stays that way. Peep the instagram post below where he explains what went down:
So I have this eye disease.. Blind in my left, and losing vision in my right. In order to prevent my eyesight from deteriorating ihad to do this surgery. This shit is beyond painful & Life be throwin’ a nigxa curve balls but what I’ve gained from it all is priceless… A lot of things that are so natural to us in life (like waking up and being able to see 👀) we can take it for granted. Thank God the OG for allowing me to see.. The good the bad the ugly, I’m just glad to see👀
