A young woman named Kaylee Muthart pulled both her eyes from her eye sockets while standing outside of a church in South Carolina. Now she has no hope of ever seeing again. Her act was so strange and unusual, Kaylee has since opened up about why she blinded herself for life. And she explained in a disturbing interview that she was hallucinating during the incident.

Kaylee’s life started to change the day she began drinking and smoking marijuana. That was the day she started down a wrong path. Before that, she was a straight-A student who had a hopeful future. But she dropped out of school when she was 20-years-old. And before long, she happened to smoke a joint that was laced with methamphetamine – the drug known on the street as Crystal Meth.
And as soon as she smoked meth, she admitted it helped her feel “closer to God.” From that moment, she was hooked.
Before long, she was also diagnosed with bipolar disorder. This mental illness combined with her drug use was a dangerous combination. And she relentlessly tried to find the religious experience she had while on meth that summer after dropping out of school. But she could never quite reach that magnificent state.
She fell into the squalls of drug addiction. And she hit bottom in February so hard she will never experience life the same way ever again.
In February Kaylee tore out her own eyes from their sockets while hallucinating during a drug binge outside of a South Carolina church.
She spoke to Cosmopolitan about her horrendous experience with methamphetamine.
“I was hallucinating, so my memories are fuzzy,” Kaylee said. “I remember thinking that someone had to sacrifice something important to right the world, and that person was me. I thought everything would end abruptly and everyone would die if I didn’t tear out my eyes immediately.”
She remembers what it felt like to tear her eyes out.
“I pushed my thumb, pointer, and middle finger into each eye. I gripped each eyeball, twisted, and pulled until each eye popped out of the socket — it felt like a massive struggle, the hardest thing I ever had to do. Because I could no longer see, I don’t know if there was blood. But I know the drugs numbed the pain.”
Kaylee had torn her eyes out in front of churchgoers. And these people in Anderson heard the young lady screaming, and they tried to help. But Kaylee, raddled by drugs, pushed them away.
The pastor watched her squeeze her eyeballs in her hands.
“I’m pretty sure I would have tried to claw right into my brain if a pastor hadn’t heard me screaming, ‘I want to see the light!’ — which I don’t recall saying — and restrained me,” Kaylee said. “He later said, when he found me, that I was holding my eyeballs in my hands. I had squished them, although they were somehow still attached to my head.”
Kaylee did not receive help until it was too late. She had ruined her eyesight for life.
Now Kaylee is trying to recover.
