Fresh-faced Nigerian actor Mike Ezuruonye has undergone a successful eye operation after he revealed in an Instagram post that he was subtly losing his sight as a result of the harsh light they are exposed to during filmmaking.
Mike noted that there was a growth encroaching the pupil of both eyes due to the harsh production lights which enter their eyes during filming over the years he has been in the industry.
He said upon the advise of friends, he decided to opt for surgery to correct the anomaly before he becomes blind although he was scared to the bone before making the decision.
“Forgive being Reluctant but just had to share..Many don’t know what we go through in the course of our work (FILM MAKING)..
Had a growth encroaching the pupil of both eyes cos of over exposure to HARSH movie Production LIGHTS over the Years…(Heard looking into your PHONE/COMPUTER for too long also puts one in Danger)..Advised to get Surgery done,I was Scared…
After Surgery, for over 8 hrs ,i was without sight as my eyes were Demanded Tightly Closed,Tightly Shut by the Ophthalmologist Team of Doctors..Hmnnn..
These Made me Appreciate more the GIFT of Sight GOD gave me…Goshhhh that I can never ever take for Granted..Scary experience…But GOD is always Faithful..Glad Surgery was SUCCESSFUL and i will be back real soon to my work and Passion.”
