Dr Ranya Habash, Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology in Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, said procedures like the one Nadinne opted for cause “irreparable” damage to the eyes.
She said: “The issue with injecting a silicone plate into the eye is that it clogs the drain of the eye, just like as if a sink was blocked.
“The pressure builds and builds inside the eye, causing inflammation and damaging the structures.
“There’s a reason these procedures are not FDA approved and that’s because we’ve seen the long-term and irreparable damage they can cause.
“Nadinne’s eye problems are something she will have to deal with for the rest of her life. She’s never going to be done with it.”
Nadinne said the surgery impacted her career as she was unable to participate in photo shoots for her Instagram page, because of the appearance of her eyes.
The model said she slipped into a deep depression throughout the past two years but said she was lucky to have the support of her sister.
“My sister became like my mom. She had to do everything for me.
“I make most of my money through my Instagram account and I couldn’t do photo shoots, not while my eyes were red. I’ve been living on my savings.
“After this surgery I went into a deep depression. I’m a very strong person, usually very brave and very smart, but with this I was completely stupid. I trusted the wrong person.
“Now I have the vision of a 90-year-old lady right but I’m hoping I can just keep my glaucoma under control.”
The model has taken to Instagram to warn her followers about the risks involved in the procedure, but says her experience won’t stop her going under the knife in the future.
“It’s crazy, because even though I’ve been open about this surgery on Instagram, people are still are asking me where they can do it.
“But I don’t think surgeries are bad. I just didn’t know the risks and I made a mistake by not doing my research.
“Next month I’m going to have a surgery to reduce my boobs because I’ve lost a lot of weight this year and it’s something I have to do.”
