Fetty Wap Eye & Death Rumors

What Happened to Fetty Wap Eyes & Is He Dead?

Find the facts behind why do Fetty Wap’s eyes look so different and rumors about his death.

Fetty Wap rose to fame from his debut single “Trap Queen”. He has a huge fan base because of his unique approach towards music as he combines singing and rapping and refers to music as “ignorant R&B”.

The songwriter has not only fascinated his fans with his song but has also made them wonder why his eyes are so different than others, and his livelihood.

Why do Wap’s Eyes Look this Way?

Fetty was born with glaucoma and lost the eye at 6 months and got reconstructive surgery when he was 12, but doesn’t hide it.  Glaucoma is a disease that damages your eye’s optic nerve. It is caused when the fluid in the eyes doesn’t regulate properly, leading to build-up eye pressure.

High eye pressure can then damage the optic nerves, the nerves responsible for sending visions to the brain. He could have been completely blind if he had not gone through treatment. It can be hereditary or can occur after a trauma or infection.
Although the singer has faced problems like copyright infringement, contract violations, and being sued for assaulting a woman, eye blindness was the most worrying one. In an interview, he has said

“I’m probably one of the first rappers/singers to come on the scene with [only] one eye and be comfortable with it. A lot of people are judgmental but it’s all about how you show yourself to the people. That’s probably one of the main things people won’t know about me until they see me.”

There was a time when the rapper could have lost both of his eyes and be completely blind but luckily the doctor could save one of his eyes. The rapper is grateful and blessed. Wap has also expressed that he is comfortable with how he looks saying that he is. Also find, Megan Thee Stallion Before and After Teeth Fix and Dental Veneers!!!
