But in a new interview, Lovato shared that even 5 years later, they still have hearing loss and vision impairment as a result. “That overdose caused me a lot of … it actually caused a disability,” the pop star explained. “I have vision impairment and hearing impairment to this day.” “I don’t drive because I have blind spots in my vision,” they continued. “It’s a daily constant reminder. You know, anytime I look at something, like, I have blind spots in my vision when I look at your face, and so it’s a constant reminder to stay on the right path because I never want that to happen again.”
