After being bitten by a mosquito while on holiday in the Caribbean, a woman was left nearly blind in her right eye.

The woman vacationed on the island of Grenada in July 2014. She suffered several mosquito bites, of which one made her sick with chikungunya fever.
The condition badly damaged her optical nerve

When she became sick with chikungunya fever while on vacation in the Caribbean in July 2014, the woman, then 69 years old, experienced symptoms such as fever, joint pain, muscle weakness and rashes. A local doctor treated her with steroids, and for a while, her condition improved.

Then, when she returned to the UK in August, things took a turn for the worse. Thus, the woman noticed that she could no longer see all that well with her right eye.
