On 1000-lb Sisters, Amy Slaton is open about her weight loss journey. Her fans might not know about her eye condition that makes her legally blind.
Amy Slaton from 1000-lb Sisters has been an open book throughout her weight loss journey on the show, but some fans might not know about the television personality’s rare eye condition. While fans have been supportive of Amy’s ambitious weight loss goals, many 1000-lb Sisters viewers aren’t aware that she has more than just her weight to worry about. For Amy’s fans who aren’t in the know, here’s everything about the reality star’s eye condition and what it means for her future.
Before they were introduced to the world on 1000-lb Sisters, Amy and her sister Tammy Slaton were already popular online. Amy started working as an entertainer on YouTube back in January 2011. Over the years, Amy garnered millions of views by sharing vlogs of her and her sister’s everyday lives. Amy’s YouTube videos gained so much traction that they ultimately led to her and her sister getting their own reality series on TLC. Although 1000-lb Sisters mostly focuses on Amy and Tammy’s journey to lose enough weight to get bariatric surgery, Amy has been vocal about the other medical conditions she’s had overcome or live with.
