Rapper Fetty Wap discusses the actual events surrounding the loss of his left eye and the physician who prevented him from going completely blind when he was a toddler.
Rapper “Trap Queen” sat down with Fat Joe on Instagram to talk about losing his eye, which has come up frequently since the singer rose to fame. According to Fetty, the problem began when he was a newborn infant, and “congenital glaucoma” was discovered when he was six months old.
I was meant to lose both eyes when I was diagnosed with congenital glaucoma six months after my birth on June 7, 1991, at 9:36 in the morning. However, thanks to a doctor in Philadelphia who is currently around 80 years old, I could keep both eyes.

Most people will probably not know that about me when they see me, he informed the news source.
