During a recent interview with The Daily Beast, Roseanne Barr revealed some private details about her health.

The comedienne has macular degeneration, glaucoma, and pressure in her eyes, all of which she says smoking marijuana helps with.

“My vision is closing in now. It’s something weird. But there are other weird things. That one’s harsh, ’cause I read a lot, and then I thought, ‘Well, I guess I could hire somebody to read for me and read to me.’ But I like words and I like looking. You do what you have to do. I just try and enjoy vision as much as possible — y’know, living it up. My dad had it, too,” the 62-year-old said.

According to The Huffington Post, macular degeneration causes hazy vision, at times even leading to a blind spot in the center of a person’s field of vision. Glaucoma, often eased through medicinal marijuana use, causes nerve damage and may result in loss of eyesight.

Her doctors are unable to give her a time frame for when she will completely lose her vision, although she tweeted that it won’t be any time soon:

THZ sends her our best wishes.
