Famous comedian turned infamous alleged sex abuser Bill Cosby, is now totally blind, according to reports.  

Page Six reports that Bill Cosby is now "completely blind," according to an anonymous source.  The source also added that the comedian is "in his own personal hell."

Cosby, once known as "America's Dad," and now sometimes referred to as "America's Creepy Uncle," has been accused of drugging and sexually assaulting dozens of women over several decades.  

According to Page Six, Cosby is confined to his home, sightless, with his only companion being his wife, Camille.  

The source, who is reportedly close to Cosby, told the celebrity news publication: "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."

The source added: "He is confined to his house in Pennsylvania, and the only person in his side is his wife, Camille, who is masterminding his defense. His only friends are the small army of lawyers on his payroll."   

Page Six reports that Cosby has been suffering from a degenerative eye condition called keratoconus, which causes the cornea to bulge. In January, his lawyer, Monique Pressley, made the statement that Cosby's appearance in a mug shot is "a 78-year-old blind man who they've chosen to charge."

Cosby has also been led to court with reps on both arms. He is currently 79 years old.  

Cosby faces three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault stemming from a 2004 case involving Andrea Constand, an employee at Cosby's alma mater, Temple University. A judge has ruled that Cosby must stand trial, and a date has yet to be determined.
