On the latest episode of From Not to Hot, Mama June Shannon sported an eye patch and complained about the fact that she might lose her eyesight permanently. After she was rushed to the hospital to have emergency eye surgery, the reality TV star continued to have blurry vision.
She wore an eye patch and later on, the doctor diagnosed her with a re-detached retina.
Her boyfriend Geno and her daughter Honey Boo Boo were the ones who took her to the hospital the first time after she just woke up with blindness in both eyes.
‘What if I lose sight in my good eye? I went totally blind in my right eye four years ago! I do not want to lose my independence,’ Mama June worried.
The medical specialists ordered her immediate surgery to try and correct the problem.
But even though the retina was reattached successfully and she was allowed to go home, they made it very clear that the chance she would regain sight after healing was 50/50.
The woman realized her vision was getting worse while shopping at Costco with her family during the latest episode.
‘I don’t know what is going on. My headaches are coming back, and my eyes are killing me,’ she told the crew as she was sitting in an electric shopping cart that Alana aka Honey Boo Boo was driving.
In a later scene, she was diagnosed with a redetached retina, and this really worried the celeb that she might never be able to see her daughter Pumpkin’s baby!
Her man and Alana described what the baby, a girl, looked like in the 3D picture at the doctors, trying to comfort her.
It is still unclear whether or not Mama June will be stuck with the unfortunate eye problem forever or not.
