Love Island’s Theo Campbell shares video of himself seconds after horror accident that split eye in two – OK! magazine
Theo Campbell has shared a video of himself just moments after the injury that has left him with no vision in his right eye.
The 28 year old revealed earlier this week that he has completely lost his vision in one of his eyes after a Champagne cork split it in two.
Love Island star Theo has now taken to Instagram to share a video of himself holding his face shortly after the horrific accident took place.
Posting to his 285,000 followers, the star — who has now found fame in America after participating in reality show The Challenge — reflected on the accident, hinting that he wishes he could have been more “prepared.”
In the short clip, Theo is seen clutching at his eye socket while the sound of bottles opening fills the air.
Being helped by a man with goggles on his head, Theo wrote: “If only I had that guys goggles…prepared [sic]”
Following the accident, Theo has revealed it is “unlikely” he will regain his vision in his right eye following the freak accident.
The reality star was partying in Ibiza when he was hit by a flying Champagne bottle cork, which split his eyeball in two. After being hospitalised and undergoing two operations, Theo now has seven stitches in his eye.
Theo took to Twitter earlier this week to inform his 19,000 followers: “Just Wana say thanks again for all the love and support there’s been 100x more then I imagined. I haven’t had a chance to read all the messages yet but they’re much appreciated [sic]
“I currently have 7 stitches in my eye (gross) and the doctors say it’s unlikely I’ll see properly again, they done a good job saving it as they said I might loose my whole eye to begin with.
“But Im hopeful and don’t want to believe my eye is gone forever. Anything is possibl [sic]“
A source exclusively told OK! online at the time of the incident: “Theo was partying at the Champagne spray party with sunglasses on, when some Champagne got in his eye.
“He removed his glasses to rub the Champagne out of his eye, when a cork flew into his eye. The cork was travelling really fast and Theo’s eyeball was split entirely open.
“It took a moment for people around Theo to realise what had happened, but people started screaming and panicking when they saw his eye.
“Poor Theo was in complete agony and it was just a total freak accident. He was rushed to hospital but sadly his vision couldn’t be saved.”
Theo’s girlfriend, Kaz Crossley, rushed to his side at the Spanish hospital, gushing over his bravery in an emotional post.
Sharing an image of herself alongside Theo — complete with eye bandage — in a hospital bed to her 1.3million Instagram followers, she wrote: “It’s been a hard 24 hours no one here speaks English and he was taken for hours at one point and I had no clue he was in surgery again.
“I’ve stayed in his room over night and just wanna take him home. He’s so brave and positive hopefully it will get better thanks for your kind messages. I hope this will make people aware of the dangers at these parties and to be more careful.”
Thanking his own Instagram followers for their support after the accident took place, Theo said: “Thanks for all the messages and support I’ve got over the last couple days they’re all very much appreciated!
“So yeah basically 2 eye surgeries later after a really unfortunate accident, I’ve lost all vision in my right eye as it got split in half, who would have thought a Champagne cork would be the end of me… But I still have 1 eye left, looking at the bright side of things.
“Thanks for flying out to look after me as well babe. if anyone knows where sells cool eye patches let me know :). #captinhook#thor #fettywap.” [sic]“
