After being charged with three counts of sexual assault last week, things don’t seem to be getting any better for Bill Cosby. The comedian, who has now had over 50 women come out and speak against him, is also apparently blind.

Cosby’s lawyer Monica Pressley went on CBS’s This Morning and revealed that her client suffers from a degenerative eye condition called Keratoconus, which is a thinning condition of the cornea that causes eyes to budge. It’s probably why his right eye looks so strange in his mugshot.

“He’s a 78-year-old blind man who they’ve chosen to charge, that’s not a defense to a charge, that’s just a fact,” Pressley said last week.
