What happened to Amy Andrews from Fox 2 News in Detroit?

At the beginning of February 2024, Amy stepped away from Fox 2 News to undergo a refractive lens exchange. In her update to fans posted to X, Amy explained that the outpatient surgery was only performed on her left eye due to her "having a tough time [seeing] out of that eye due to the cloudiness and swelling."

She also mentioned she might undergo surgery for her right eye, though it isn't clear if she actually did. Amy also revealed to fans that she has "been basically blind since [she] was three, [she] had Lasik when [she] was 22, but that has since worn off."
