Blynd began when Milan lost his sight. He was diagnosed with acanthamoeba keratitis, a serious infection of the eye that can cause permanent blindness. Milan was to undergo extensive eye treatment, with no guarantee for his vision to return. He was completely blind.
After months of treatment, and a successful cornea transplant, Milan started to regain vision in one of his eyes. Hope for full vision was restored.
As life was getting back to normal for him, the unexpected happened. Milan was a front seat passenger in a head on car crash, with him absorbing most of the impact. He sustained serious injuries, one being a ruptured globe of the eye.
