August Alsina opened up to fans about a difficult health issue that he's been fighting through, and revealed that he is blind in his left eye and is going blind in his right eye.

The "Kissin' On My Tattoos" singer shared a photo from the doctor's office as he was undergoing a "painful" eye surgery to prevent his sight from further deteriorating. August had his eyes pried open while lasers were shot into both eyes. 

He captioned the photo, "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...
