The Block's Elyse Knowles has undergone surgery to remove a growth on her left eye.
The former reality TV star kept her fans updated on the progress of her recovery, all while revealing her gruesome bloody eyeball following the procedure.
The 26-year-old didn't hold back when showing off the post-surgery aftermath.
"I had a growth off my eyeball yesterday. I've always had red eyes. So I decided to get it off and it was always got irritated by makeup," she explained.
"Got stitches in my eyeballs. They took some white from my eye up here and put it here," she added.
"I forgot to tell you how I got that growth! I swear it's from modelling. Always having reflectors in my face and people telling me to look into the sun and smile, all while going blind at the same time...yeah thanks," she said.
Knowles shot to fame on the 2017 season of The Block, winning alongside her partner Josh Barker.
Following her win, the model was announced the new face of Myer and became a national brand ambassador for Aveda.
