The New Orleans singer is currently one of the hottest R&B artists in the industry, so no one would guess he’s been quietly dealing with an eye disease for some time now.


According to August, he’s blind in his left eye and slowly losing vision in his right. Fortunately, he’s undergone a procedure that should help him maintain his sight.

The 22-year-old shared a photo of the procedure at the start of the weekend. In it, his eyes are being held open with metal clasps, while a green light is projected directly onto his corneas.
