Roseanne Barr offered a frank assessment of how she was coping with her deteriorating eyesight, saying in an interview on Monday that she expected to go blind as a result of macular degeneration and glaucoma.

The comedian said in an interview with The Daily Beast that she used marijuana to relieve the feeling of pressure in her eyes, but her symptoms were steadily worsening.

“My vision is closing in now,” Barr said. “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,” she added, “y’know, living it up.”
