Reports sad that Khusnutdinova, who is the star of the Russian popular reality show ‘Dom-2’ (‘House 2’), a mix of ‘Big Brother’ and ‘Love Island’, injured her left eye after drinking too much at a party.
According to local media, after returning home she tried to remove a contact lens even though she was not wearing them, causing an infection and inflammation in her left eye.
A few days after the incident, Khusnutdinova sought medical help after experiencing acute pain and other unpleasant symptoms.
The reality star was diagnosed with keratitis and a corneal ulcer and hospitalised.
Keratitis can seriously damage the cornea if untreated. The condition commonly begins with a bacterial infection of the lacrimal sac.
Khusnutdinova shared her health problems on social media after fans did not see her on the popular reality show and started worrying.
She said: “I am a disaster. I am in the hospital with a corneal ulcer and keratitis, but doctors say I am going to get well soon. Thank you for your support. See you soon. Love you!”
Social media user ‘Volk4368’ said: “Get well soon, beautiful! You are the best!”
‘Nosotkuschu’ added: “I love you! You are smart and beautiful!”
