I’m alright. This is just a case of growing pains, I guess. While filming, a substance got into my eye and made my eye feel like it was on fire. Because the hospitals were closing, I went to the emergency room and learned my cornea was damaged. It hurts, but this, too, will pass. Please be careful, as your health is precious!!!
