It's time you became aware of the perils of cosmetic surgery Image: Twitter
Who doesn't want blue-green eyes like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan? But be careful what you wish for. Just ask Nadinne Bruna. The 32-year-old Instagram model is now partially blind after a surgical procedure to change her eye colour went wrong.
The US-based Argentinian model had hazel eyes and she altered them to light gray by undergoing a procedure in which silicone implants are placed in the eye. As the procedure is banned in the US, she had travelled to Columbia to get it done.
Now, Nadinne claims her vision has constantly been blurring as a result of the pressure placed on her optic nerve by the implant, which she got done in 2016. Her her eyes also keep turning red and causes pain.
She took to Instagram to talk about her problem and has been using her example to warn people about the perils of cosmetic surgery.
"Ever since this surgery, I have had blurry vision. For about a year my eyes were constantly red and itchy. My pupils, they can't adjust to light anymore so I'm very photosensitive now too. This surgery completely f***** up my life. My vision damage is permanent, and I still have to have a cornea transplant and I have cataracts too," she said.
“Quiero que EL MUNDO se entere de esto! Aberración ABSOLUTA”! Por seguir malas direcciones de segun “Un medico prestigioso”, un año me tuvo asi.. cuando veo mal desde el dia 1!! Mi vida desde septiembre de 2016 es un constante POSTOPERATORIO. No tengo palabras para describir tanta falta de compasion humana. Como una persona de buen corazon que tengo, jamas suelo crer que existe tanta maldad. Sin dudas mi DIOS es INMENSO. Era para haber terminado ciega. Gracias a mis angeles y arcangeles que no lo estoy! #SoyUnMilagroDeDIOS #Karma #TodoCaePorSuPropioPeso #ElTienpoPoneAcadaUnoEnSuLugar
What has happened to Nadinne is tragic, and it gives you a lesson worth learning.
