Roseanne Barr Says She Is Losing Her Eyesight

Apr 21, 2015  •  Post A Comment

Roseanne Barr says she has macular degeneration that will ultimately leave her blind.

In an interview with the Daily Beast, Barr, 63, “says marijuana is good medicine for her because ‘I have macular degeneration and glaucoma, so it’s good for me for that because I have pressure in my eyes.’”

The interviewer, Tim Treeman, then asks Barr if her macular degeneration will leave her blind and they have this exchange:

“Yeah,” Barr replies, flatly.

Have her doctors given her any kind of time frame on when that will come to pass?

“No, they can’t. My vision is closing in now,” Barr says, making a narrowing motion with her hands near her eyes. “It’s something weird. But there are other weird things. That one’s harsh, ’cause I read a lot, and then I thought, ‘Well, I guess I could hire somebody to read for me and read to me.’ But I like words and I like looking. You do what you have to do. I just try and enjoy vision as much as possible—y’know, living it up. My dad had it, too.”

  1. Ask Rosanne if she would consider the holistic approach for her vision. You can’t just depend on weed,that’s not gonna cure the damage from the radicals in the body. Rosanne you definitely need big doses of anti oxidants that boost eye health.Dr Richard Becker with Bio innovations could help you tremendously. He helped my diabetes. Very genuine person also a bio chemist. Has himself beaten cancer!! Good Luck. You are a great comedian,I neverissed an episode of ROSANNE.IT WAS FABULOUS…Always made my day ..XO
