IG model who is HIV positive is blind again after undergoing eye surgery
Before the surgery, there was reason to hope the procedure would restore her vision.
Instagram model, Gena Tew, who revealed a couple of weeks back that she is HIV positive, has gone totally blind on one eye following an eye surgery.
Gena underwent surgery sometime in August after she lost her vision in her left eye following her HIV diagnosis. Before the surgery, there was reason to hope the procedure would restore her vision.
Speaking to TMZ following the eye surgery, Gena revealed that she’s now completely blind in that eye for a second time and all she can see is pitch-black darkness.
Doctors prescribed new medication, but all the drugs have done is made her sick. Medical officials are now considering another surgery, but no decision has been made yet.
Gena has seen some improvement in other areas. She’s been putting some weight back on recently, going from 90 lbs to 105 lbs. She’s also regaining her ability to walk, with the help of a walker.
