Eastenders legend June brown who played Dot Cotton in the soap for more than 35 years has admitted that she can no longer watched it on the telly due to her falling eyesight.
June was forced to quit her role on the BBC soap due to her eyesight problems after she was diagnosed with as incurable eye condition macular degeneration.
In June 2017 underwent a controversial eye operation in a desperate attempt to save her sight, but revealed last year she’s now starting to go blind.
When asked if she still watches the soap by The Mirror June said:
‘I haven’t been watching it as I find it difficult to see the television very clearly.
‘If your sight is poor, there’s very little you can do. I read my Kindle instead. I can see where everything is around the house but nothing’s clear.
It was in June 2017 when she revealed she had undergone a controversial operation by Harley Street ophthalmologist Bobby Qureshi, who has since been investigated by a medical disciplinary panel over allegations of dishonesty and misconduct, and struck off.
