January 11th, 2023 at 2:00 p.m. by Sebastian Glanzer – Twitch streamer Ibai has often complained about vision problems in one eye in the past. As it turned out, he suffers from an eye disease that, in the worst case, could lead to complete blindness.
Ibai is one of the biggest streamers on Twitch. In the list of the most watched streamers in 2022, the 27-year-old Spaniard is in third place with over 112 million viewer hours. In addition to gaming and variety streams, he is known as a presenter and esports commentator. As Ibai recently announced, there is a risk that he could soon go blind.
After being treated by specialists, they informed him that there was a high probability that he would go blind in his left eye. In his live stream on January 10, 2023, he explained to his viewers how bad his eyesight is.
Ibai hopes to save his second eye
In the past, the streamer has repeatedly complained that he sees very poorly in his left eye. As it turns out, behind this is a degenerative eye disease that, according to the doctors, could also spread to his right eye and Ibai could go completely blind.
In his statement, he said that if he continues to use a sleep apnea machine, he may be able to save his right eye. A sleep apnea device is used to help people breathe at night. In this disorder, breathing stops and starts suddenly and irregularly during sleep.
