News: Bret Michaels Freak Corneal Ulcer; Gets Shot in the Eye

Bret Michaels of Poison can’t seem to get a break when it comes to his health. From The Birmingham News:

“Someone said, ‘Bret, you rock!,’ and this glass filled with vodka and Red Bull fell on my head, and something in the glass scratched my eye,” Michaels said. “It was this comedy of errors that I survived through.” 

Instead of seeking medical attention, Michaels said he decided to try eye drops and be a “self-remedy guy.” About a week ago, however, he realized something was seriously wrong. 

Three doctor visits resulted, he said, including a trip to a specialist in Annapolis, Md. 

“I got a shot in my eye yesterday,” Michaels said. “They numb your eye completely. They don’t even have a remedy for what’s wrong with my eye. They’re using this crazy stuff in my eye that they invented.” 

With his usual good humor, Michaels is soldiering on. 

“I’m playing through the pain,” he said. “I haven’t canceled any shows. They dilated my eyes and I looked like one of those old Dr. Shock freak horror shows.”
