August Alsina recently made a revealing confession to his fans. The R&B crooner took to Instagram to inform supporters about his current battle with an eye disease, which has caused him partial blindness.

“So I have this eye disease.. Blind in my left, and losing vision in my right,” he captioned a photo posted Friday (May 15) of him in the middle of an operation.

While the news is definitely saddening, things are already looking up for the “No Love” singer as he is undergoing treatment in hopes of fully regaining his sight. “In order to prevent my eyesight from deteriorating ihad [sic] to do this surgery,” he wrote. “This s**t is beyond painful & Life be throwin’ a n***a curve balls but what I’ve gained from it all is priceless.”

The 22-year-old ended the post by encouraging his fans to appreciate life’s simple miracles. “A lot of things that are so natural to us in life (like waking up and being able to see) we can take it for granted,” he wrote. “Thank God the OG for allowing me to see.. The good the bad the ugly, I’m just glad to see.”

We wish the young singer a speedy recovery.
