The horrific incident made headlines around the world
A woman from Anderson, South Carolina, who made international headlines after she gouged her eyes out during a shocking meth-induced psychotic episode in 2018 has received a pair of prosthetic eyeballs.
The Sun reports that Kaylee Muthart was 20 years old when she ripped out her own eyes, squishing them with her hands after snorting and injecting tainted methamphetamine, while a horrified onlooker tried to restrain her.
Muthart believed at the time that if she plucked her eyes out, she would save the world.
“The drugs take your fears and beliefs and amplify them,” she told People magazine nearly a year after the terrifying incident. “I thought I had to take my eyes out to survive and save the world.”
She was rushed to hospital, where doctors informed the young woman that she would be blind for the rest of her life. more
