According to yesterday’s New York Post, Bill Cosby is blind due to keratoconus, a condition that causes the corneas to bulge. Attorneys have to hold him by the arms and lead him into court (for his rape trial), he’s “in his own personal hell” confined to his house with only his wife, Camille, on his side.
And keratoconus can cause blindness if untreated. That’s what the doctor who diagnosed me with it said. Since then I’ve had two corneal surgeries and been fitted with RGP contact lenses.
I find it hard to believe Cosby, with all his money, wouldn’t get treatment, would just go blind quietly. Sure, he’s twice my age and maybe the surgery (which they’ve only been doing for ten years) wasn’t available to him, but I think he’s either faking or exaggerating his condition in hopes of being spared jail time.
