WNY raises cash for nail tech shedding eyesight

BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) – Thanks to the Buffalo Strong Spirit of western New Yorkers, a woman can keep her eyesight.

Karla Marshall, 24, is an aspiring nail technician who was diagnosed with keratoconus in 2019. The disease causes them to see double and potentially go blind if left untreated.

After visiting several ophthalmologists, her insurance would not cover the cost of the individual surgery that would save her eyesight, nor the special contact lenses she needed to see properly.

Karla went to GoFundMe.com to cover the cost of both and hit the $ 8,000 goal after a month.

She also says that she will update people on her journey through their TikTok page.
