Campbell said, "I currently have 7 stitches in my eye (gross) and the doctors say it’s unlikely I’ll see properly again, they done a good job saving it as they said I might loose my whole eye to begin with. But Im hopeful and don’t want to believe my eye is gone forever. Anything is possible."

The reality star also tweeted to thank fans again saying the support he's received has been "100x more then I imagined."
