EXCLUSIVE ‘I’d never been so frightened in my life!’: Lizzie Cundy, 51, claims she went BLIND after filler procedure as she battled to look young after her lover was caught with girl, 21
Lizzie Cundy was left terrified when she started to go blind after having filler injected into her eye sockets.
The 51-year-old said she opted to have the Harley Street procedure after her ex Jeremy Gordeno developed a close friendship with his former fiancée’s daughter, 21.
Admitting she was ridden by fear at the side effects, the media personality told MailOnline: ‘I have never been so frightened as to think I could nearly have lost my eyesight by not doing my research and just wanting to look and feel better!’

Lizzie had the procedure in a bid to get rid of her eye bags after a friend had the same procedure and looked great and she too, wanted a quick fix.
The model said that that within minutes, she knew that something was awry. She said her eyes puffed up and as time went by, her vision started to go blurry.
Recalling the ordeal, she explained: ‘Well I literally was feeling a bit low and tired and a friend said: “Yes you do look rather tired Lizzie… have you not tried filler around the eyes? It can take 10 years off you!”
‘I really didn’t think too much about it and just thought: “Yes, why not?” It was a knee jerk reaction as I just felt a bit low and had had a bit of a tough time so wanted to feel and look better – a quick fix!

‘But as soon as the treatment was done I could feel something was not correct. I felt the needle go so close to my eye it scared me and as by the time I got home I could see my eyes had totally swollen up… like I had an allergic reaction!’
Luckily Lizzie was able to enlist an experienced eye doctor who was able to save her sight, but she wants others to think twice before having similar procedures.
She added to MailOnline: ‘I called the practitioner straightaway who said try not to worry and bathe in cold compresses… but I could tell his advice was not going to help.
‘In the morning, my actually eyesight was blurry and I started to panic! I thought I could lose my eye sight here! My eyes were like so swollen… I was scared!
‘I called my friend who had a specialist doctor who specialises in removing filler. As soon as I sent him the pics of my eyes, he said to come in straight away… it was urgent. I literally could feel a burning [sensation] in my eyes.’
Detailing her recovery, she went on: ‘He said he had to remove it all immediately and that it may hurt, but I didn’t care as I just wanted it out.
‘As soon as he put the dissolving solution in, I could see it all disappearing and literally my eyesight came slowly back within minutes!

‘I am a very lucky girl and would warn others to think twice before having any filler as it actually travels and I nearly lost my eyesight!’
The TV star also admitted she feared she wouldn’t be able to see her two sons, Josh and James, again.
Lizzie – who shares her boys with ex Jason Cundy – added to The Sun: ‘I thought of everything I would lose – being able to look at my gorgeous boys – all because I had been trying to improve the way I look. It was horrendous.’
She has been open about the multiple procedures she has had in the past, including a boob job and cosmetic procedures on her face.

It sounds as though Lizzie had a near-miss when it comes to her sight as the publication reports that filler ops have led to 200 documented cases of vision loss.
Now that Lizzie has got nightclub boss Jeremy out of her system, she appears to have moved on with DJ Donald Friese.
The couple have been pictured out and about on a recent trip to Los Angeles.
Her recent words come after Lizzie revealed she has had her social media accounts hacked – and has revealed she is also being blackmailed by the hacker.
She told MailOnline on Monday: ‘My Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and emails have been hacked and they are blackmailing me with apparent naked pictures of me!
‘I have had no sleep!. And the hacker keeps contacting all my celebrity followers pretending to be me!’
Distressed Lizzie went on to explain: ‘I have hired Michael Jackson’s security team Matt Fiddes, as they have been able to try and stop who is doing this! The hacker has gone into my private messages on Instagram to get all my celebrity friends and they all have been contacted!’
