Los Angeles rapper Jermaine Foots, aka Kissk, wanted light grey eyes, and that meant a controversial eye surgery in which cosmetic implants were permanently placed in his eyes, Fox 11 News reports.
The operation is not approved in the United States, so Kissk flew to India to get it done, even making a YouTube video to chronicle the operation.
At first there were no complications. But three years later, Kissk began losing his eyesight, and he ended up in the office of Dr. Aveneet Sodhi Gaur, a cataract and glaucoma specialist at the Assil Eye Institute in Beverly Hills.
