There was something noticeably different about Whoopi Goldberg’s appearance during Monday’s episode of “The View.”
Goldberg, who has worn glasses for the past 28 years, hosted it without them, explaining through “Hot Topics” section She underwent eye surgery over the weekend.
“I had surgery, they replaced the lens and the lens they replaced it with looks a bit like the lens of my glasses,” declared the 67-year-old.
Then co-host Sunny Hostin stepped in, excitedly announcing that Goldberg could see now.
Goldberg explained that, “A couple of weeks ago, when we had a show with the people from ‘Picard,’ I was trying to read porn without my actual glasses, and I couldn’t do that, so I ended up wearing them.” [my glasses]. “
The ‘Sister Act’ star revealed that the procedure was to treat a condition called presbyopia. She explained that she had a “too small” cataract on the lens of her eye, which is why it had been replaced.
Presbyopia is a “refractive error” that makes it difficult for people to see things up close, according to National Eye Institute. It’s a normal part of aging, and it happens because the lens in your eye “stops focusing light properly on your retina,” notes the NEI.
During the segment, Goldberg urged viewers to get their eyes checked if they had any problems with their vision.
“The automated age has arrived,” she jokes.
Goldberg’s announcement comes on the heels of a recent controversy she made on the talk show. During last Wednesday’s episode of “The View,” Goldberg used what is considered a racial slur toward the Romani people.
She referred to “people who still think he somehow got the oomph in the election” while discussing Donald Trump and Stormy Daniels.
The term is derived from the word “Gypsy” and is considered derogatory.
Less than an hour later, she issued an apology for using the word, via a video posted to the official show Twitter account.
“You know, when you’re a certain age, you use words that you knew as a kid or remember saying, and that’s what I did today — and I shouldn’t,” Goldberg said in the short. .
She continued, “I should have thought about it a little longer before saying it but I didn’t. I should have said ‘cheated’ and used another word and I’m really sorry.”
The hosts were also heavily criticized last week By fans for failing to ask Hugh Grant about his viral 2023 Oscars interview with Ashley Graham. He appeared on the show on Thursday.
