Campbell of MTV’s The Challenge fame was struck in the eyes and became blind in the right eye after what he described as a “really unfortunate accident” involving a champagne cork.
The 28-year-old reality star has undergone invasive eye surgery after his right eye “split in half” when he was hit in the face with a champagne cork on holiday in Ibiza, an Island in Spain.
He shared the news on his verified Instagram page and on his Twitter page.
He said that despite undergoing two eye surgeries, he has “lost all vision in my right eye” because it was “split in half.”
“Who would have thought [that] a champagne cork would be the end of me!?” Campbell lamented on Instagram.
His girlfriend, Kaz Crossley, said the accident occurred when Campbell got champagne in his eye.
“He took his glasses off for a moment and at that point, a cork hit him directly in the eye.
“He was hospitalised and had seven stitches to close the eye,” Crossley narrated on her own Instagram handle.
“This will make people aware of the dangers related to opening champagne bottles around other people and be more careful,” she counselled.
A source told OK! online of the incident:
“Theo was on holiday in Ibiza enjoying himself when someone popped a bottle of Champagne and the cork flew into his eye.
“People were screaming when they realised what happened and saw the state of his eye. One of the guys said it looked like his eye had exploded.”
