R&B singer August Alsina has taken a proactive step to correct his vision.
On Friday, the 22-year-old New Orleans native revealed to his 2.7 million Instagram followers that he was in the process of undergoing eye surgery due to an unspecified eye disease. Alsina said he has lost vision in his left eye and is slightly blind in his right.
Following the procedure, he expressed his gratitude for regaining his vision and the lessons he's learned through the process.
“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,” Alsina wrote on Instagram. “Thank God the OG for allowing me to see. The good the bad the ugly, I'm just glad to see.”
