Julia Roberts has been left in shock following a terrible diagnosis by her doctors.

According to New Idea, the 48 year is old is going blind. Although, she has been clinically blind in one eye since birth, sadly the vision in her other eye has been declining to the point where she may no longer be allowed to drive a car.

A friend of the actress told the magazine ”Julia’s biggest fear is that she will lose her eyesight. Of course, her worst nightmare would be if she was unable to see her kids.”

Julia has been putting on a brave face while promoting her new movie Money Monster with co-star George Clooney at the Cannes International Film Festival in France but behind the scenes, it’s a very different story.

It is believed that as well as her failing sight, she is becoming heavily reliant on the support of her cinematographer husband Danny Moder, 47. 

Julia is believed to also suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, as well as chronic head and neck pain stemming from a bout of spinal meningitis she contracted in the 1980s.
