Did Mel B Go Blind? Spice Girl Talks About Her Very Scary Eye Condition
You may have heard some reports this past week of Mel B going blind, which is admittedly a strange rumor to hear. It’s like, if you hear a rumor of someone going blind, it’s usually because they went blind. That’s a difficult rumor to just pull out of thin air.
Turns out, Mel B did go blind…kinda. Scary Spice went on her Instagram account to tell her fans about a very scary experience she had.
She went blind in her right eye and her left eye was super blurry…
Even though the stupid press said I’m OK and this has happened to me many times before, just to be clear I was NOT OK and this has NEVER EVER happened to me before. [I was] actually in a lot of pain and very very scared.
According to her post, she was diagnosed by an eye specialist with “severe iritis” in her right eye and “uveitis” in her left eye.
I’m taking multiple prescription heavy duty eye drops and other medication the dr gave me that I have to take every day to keep the inflammation under control. Also I’m being so well looked after by Team Spice special thanks to our paramedics too!!
Obviously she was pretty terrified when she first went blind because she didn’t know if it would be permanent. Luckily, she knows now that the condition is not expected to get worse and will improve over the next few months. It’s just going to be a slow progression. She’ll have to wear an eye patch for at least a few more weeks.
“My only problem now is I have to find a very cool Scary eye patch,” she joked.
And yes, she’s still rehearsing with the group, ’cause women are super humans who can work/take care of the family while battling pretty much anything.
