Savannah has detailed the visual impairments she's suffered due to the injury on her show. 

She previously explained: "I have all kinds of things going on where it's kind of distorted and then it's got a wavy thing and now I have this cataract which is a big blurry spot."

Prior to her cataract surgery last year she added: "Lots of people have had cataract surgery or their parents have had cataract surgery. ... It's very common in the elderly, but it happens if you have this retina detachment surgery. Once they remove that blur, I think it will be a lot better."

Here's hoping for a positive update on her latest procedure.
