“Thank you so much for all the lovely support and messages I’ve had about my eye. Just so you know the real truth. I had an awful experience last week when I went blind in my right eye and my left eye went blurry.” Mel B
MEL B: "I WAS NOT OK"
Mel B spoke about the frightening loss of vision in her right eye, and the blurring in her left eye, which was later diagnosed by a specialist as uveitis - a form of eye inflammation that could be caused by infection, injury, or an autoimmune or inflammatory disease.
The 43-year-old singer is now taking medication and eye drops for the inflammation and is on her way to a full recovery.
This is Mel B's second health scare in six months since she was hospitalized in December 2018
MEL B LASHES OUT AT THE PRESS
The Spice Girl called out the press for stating that she was "OK" and that she had had the condition before.
“Even though the stupid press said I’m ok and this has happened to me many times before, just to be clear I was NOT ok and this has NEVER EVER happened to me before. I was actually in a lot of pain and very very scared,” she wrote.
MEL B ON SPICE GIRLS' REUNION
Mel B, who is about to join fellow Spice Girls Melanie Chisholm, Emma Bunton, and Geri Halliwell in a reunion tour, Spice World – 2019 Tour, has quipped that she needs a pirate patch.
“My only problem now is I have to find a very cool Scary eye patch. Does anyone - apart from Madonna - know where I can get one ??”

Thank you so much for all the lovely support and messages I’ve had about my eye. Just so you know the real truth. I had an awful experience last week when I went blind in my right eye and my left eye went blurry. Even though the stupid press said I’m ok and this has happened to me many times before, just to be clear I was NOT ok and this has NEVER EVER happened to me before,so who every is selling this story “a close reliable source” is full of BS and needs to get there silly facts right big time,I was actually in a lot of pain and very very scared but thanks to the incredible eye specialists in A&E at London’s Moorfields Hospital and after at Luton and Dunstable University Hospital I was diagnosed by and eye specialist with severe IRITIS in my right eye and UVEITIS in my left eye.I’m taking multiple prescription heavy duty eye drops and other medication the dr gave me that I have to take every day to keep the inflammation under control,Also I’m being so well looked after by Team Spice special thanks to our paramedics too!!im still dealing with it and will be fir the next 3/4 months to fully get it under control but I’m no longer worried that my condition will get worse. My only problem now is I have to find a very cool Scary eye patch. Does anyone - apart from Madonna - know where I can get one ?? #eyepatch Pls #takingcareofme thank you #nhs 🇬🇧
MEL B'S SECOND HEALTH SCARE
This is Mel B's second health scare in six months since she was hospitalized in December 2018 for what was reported as several broken ribs and a severed right hand.
Scary Spice was subjected to a three-hour procedure to repair the damage to her hand and has since recovered fully from her accident.
Hopefully, she will recover from her latest issue just as promptly, and forego her scary eye patch A.S.A.P.
