It was a surprise to many fans of August Alsina on Friday as the R and B singer made a  confession to his fans.

The 'Benediction' singer went on  Instagram to share his plight,revealing an eye disease which has caused him partial blindness.

"So I have this eye disease.. Blind in my left, and losing vision in my right," he captioned a photo posted of him in the middle of an operation.

According to him, he is undergoing treatment in hopes of fully regaining his sight. "In order to prevent my eyesight from deteriorating I had to do this surgery," he wrote. "This s**t is beyond painful & Life be throwin' a n***a curve balls but what I've gained from it all is priceless."

The singer concludes the message by encouraging his fans to function from a place of gratitude. "A lot of things that are so natural to us in life (like waking up and being able to see) we can take it for granted," he wrote. "Thank God the OG for allowing me to see.. The good the bad the ugly, I'm just glad to see."

Alsina took to his Instagram account to post images of a surgical procedure, which he says will prevent him from becoming totally blind after already losing vision in his left eye.
