Roseanne Barr reveals she's going blind

Roseanne Barr has revealed that she is slowly going blind.

The comedic actress said smoking marijuana is "good medicine" for relieving the pressure in her eyes.

"It's something weird. But there are other weird things. That one's harsh, 'cause I read a lot, and then I thought, 'Well, I guess I could hire somebody to read for me and read to me.' But I like words and I like looking. You do what you have to do. I just try and enjoy vision as much as possible -- y'know, living it up.

Barr also defended her use of pot, saying, "It's expansive. It opens your mind" and "It makes you wonder. It doesn't close that down."

The actress attended the Tribeca Film Festival in support of her documentary "Roseanne for President!"

Didn’t her mother tell her what causes that? Or is that just for men?

I guess its a case of poetic justice, since looking at her can hurt your eyes.

Did she look at herself in a mirror? No, wait, that would be turned to stone.

Maybe she is using blindness as a defense for this, "I Zaw nozing!"

The thought of going blind is a nightmare to me.

She has my pity.

It's apparent she didn't listen to Mom.

Probably not.

Pressure in the eyes can be partly alleviated by Forskolin, an herb available in capsules.

She should try that.
