Mel B’s vision has returned after she was temporarily blinded last week.

According to UK’s The Sun, the 43-year-old singer went to the hospital on Friday (May 17), complaining about being blinded in her right eye.

“She’s doing fine now, she’s not blind,” a source told People. “This has happened before. She has herpes in her eye, so this can happen.”

Mel’s left eye was permanently damaged following a botch laser surgery in the 1990s.

“She told the doctor she was blind because she couldn’t see but her eye is OK,” the source continues. “They gave her some drops and she’s good now. It was nothing major.”

After her vision was restored, Mel reportedly left the hospital and returned to rehearsals for the upcoming Spice Girls tour.
