Anderson Cooper posted a picture of himself to his Instagram page sporting a white gauze patch over his right eye after burning his eyelid by the sun!
Along with the photo, Cooper wrote, “Temporarily blinded last week while on assignment. UV light bouncing off water. Much better now. Details today on #andersonlive.”
Anderson Cooper can see once again after a temporary – and painful – bout of blindness.
On the show, the host revealed how he spent 36 hours blind while filming a segment for 60 Minutes on the coast of Portugal.
“I wake up in the middle of the night and it feels like my eyes are on fire,” he said. “It turns out I have sunburned my eyeballs and I go blind. I went blind for 36 hours. I took this picture of me after I went to the hospital.”
Cooper showed the same photo to the audience and joked, “That’s my new Match.com profile picture, by the way.”
