August Alsina made a shocking announcement over the weekend of the preventative measures he’s taking in order to save his vision.

The “No Love” singer clarified in an Instagram post that an eye disease caused him to lose the vision in his left eye and the right’s to deteriorate. We are not sure how long he has been battling with this issue, but the surgery he had to undergo to prevent the situation from getting any worse sure looks scary.

August Alsina Wakes Up From 3-Day Coma, “Recovering Well”

The photo that August posted on IG showed his eyes being held open with metal clamps, as a green light was shun directly in his corneas. If you take a look at the photo above, you can see that this doesn’t seem to be the most comfortable looking thing. According to August  the surgery “is beyond painful.”

This is what the singer had to say about his situation:

“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👀”

We sure do wish him the best and hope for a speedy recovery.
