Reality star Theo Campbell blind in one eye after bizarre accident involving champagne cork

2019-08-28

Reality star Theo Campbell is trying to stay optimistic following a bizarre accident left him blind in one eye.

The former “Love Island” contestant, 28, took to Instagram Tuesday to report on his condition.

“Basically 2 eye surgeries later after a really unfortunate accident, I’ve lost all vision in my right eye as it got split in half,” Campbell captioned the hospital photo of himself with girlfriend and fellow “Love Island” alum, 24-year-old Kaz Crossley. “Who would have thought a champagne cork would be the end of me … But I still have 1 eye left, looking at the bright side of things.”

Doctors were worried he’d lose the “whole eye to begin with,” Campbell tweeted Wednesday, noting he has seven “gross” stitches in his eye.

The incident, according to Crossley’s Instagram story, happened when somebody “popped a champagne bottle directly under his face," and the cork directly hit the eye.

Campbell doesn’t “want to believe my eye is gone forever," but he asked Instagram followers to recommend a shop that “sells cool eye patches” like Captain Hook, Thor or Fetty Wap.

Campbell will next appear on MTV’s game show, “The Challenge: War of the Worlds 2,? premiering Wednesday night.
