On Instagram, the host of Tipik Bénédicte Deprez revealed that she had an eye disease. “I have an eye disease. This disease is called keratoconus and leads to a deformation of the cornea (…) I have only seen out of one eye for years, and if this eye is ‘operational’ today, it is because it had a corneal transplant a few years ago. This summer, unfortunately, I had a rejection of this transplant and I am on treatment to try to stop the process, ”she writes.

The presenter is also “waiting for a transplant for the other eye, which is at the most severe stage of the disease”.

Bénédicte Deprez explains having to “slow down the pace”, in order to be able to “find a correct view and get treatment”: “I am positive and confident, the teams who follow me are at the top, and fortunately there are solutions even if the treatments and the operations are quite heavy. »

The one that can also be found on Tipik on the radio ends: “I hope that this message can also help and support people who suffer from this disease. I know it can be very scary, depressing, disabling or even excluding. Nobody wants me to play darts for example, it’s not very cool I think. She doesn’t lose her sense of humor!
