Bill Cosby has gone "completely blind" due to a degenerative eye disease and is "confined to his Pennsylvania home," according to a report from the New York Post's Page Six.
Speaking to "a source close to Cosby," Page Six reports that Cosby suffers from keratoconus, a condition which causes bulging in the cornea. The disease can result in legal blindness, and has reportedly confined Cosby to his home since about July 12, his 79th birthday.

The source close to Cosby told us, "His alleged victims may take some solace in the fact that he's in his own personal hell. He has been suffering from a degenerative eye disease and is completely blind . . . All his Hollywood friends have turned their backs on him.
"He is confined to his house in Pennsylvania, and the only person on his side is his wife, Camille, who is masterminding his defense. His only friends are the small army of lawyers on his payroll."
Earlier this year, Cosby was ordered to stand trial on three counts of aggravated indecent assault in connection with the case of former Temple University women's basketball coach Andrea Constand, who claims Cosby assaulted her in 2004. Cosby has pleaded not guilty, but should he be convicted, the entertainer faces up to 10 years in prison.
