Katie Piper’s followers express their admiration
Katie Piper has endured her fair share of operations over the years, and now she’s undergone yet another – this time on her eye.
Katie, 31, was the victim of a horrific acid attack back in 2008, which blinded her in one eye, as well as leaving the blonde beauty with painful scars over her face and body.
On Wednesday afternoon, Katie shared a photo of herself on Instagram post-surgery with the caption:
‘Another successful eye operation with @SherazDaya thank you for looking after me @CentreforSight.’
Previously speaking about losing her sight, Katie revealed: ‘Of all my injuries, it’s the damage to my left eye that has the most impact. The hardest part is not being able to see anything on one side. In crowded places it leaves me feeling scared and vulnerable.’
Katie has visited London’s Centre For Sight on several occasions for treatment saying: ‘The improvement in my quality of the life the treatment had given me is priceless.’
Since the attack, Katie has given birth to her first child, Belle Elizabeth, in March 2014 with fiancé Richard James Sutton.
Katie’s eye operation photo has been met by an endless stream of support. Followers of the star have left comments including:
‘Such an inspiration you are amazing xxxx,’ and:
‘You’re a truly wonderful person @katiepiper_ nothing phases you, hope you feel better soon you are an inspiration to me and many others ❤.’
‘You’re an inspiration @katiepiper_ you’re always so positive and courageous. Hope you have a speedy recovery. Continue doing what you’re doing, we need more people in the world like you xx,’ and:
‘Bless your beautiful heart you’ve been through the mill and you’re still smiling, you’re a true inspiration to mankind xxxx,’ as well as:
‘You are amazing. Such a fighter. So courageous the way you keep going. I wish nothing but goodness for you & your family!’
To be honest, we could not agree more! Katie is certainly an inspiration.
