“I suffered a lot”: Marie-Sophie Lacarrau comes out of silence about her illness and announces her big return!

Thusday 12 may 2022, Marie-Sophie Lacarrau confided exclusively in Le Parisien. She spoke of the disease which made her suffer a lot, but also her big return to 13 Hours of TF1.

Almost five months after contracting an infection in her right eye because of her contact lenses, Marie-Sophie Lacarrau is better. The presenter of the JT of Time on TF1 spoke exclusively on Thursday 12 May in Le Parisien. She explained that overnight, she had no longer supported the light of day. After several tests, she learned that she had amoebic keratitis. She said: “It’s an infection of the cornea by amoebae, parasites present in tap water. The fatal combination was: lens and tap water“.

During the duration of her treatment, Marie-Sophie Lacarrau admitted that she had “ suffered a lot “. Indeed, she explained: “ It is a disease that hurts a lot, like its treatments. You feel like you have gravel or pieces of glass in your eye. The pain radiates in the head and in the teeth. Impossible to imagine that it would be so long, so painful “. Jean-Pierre Pernaut’s replacement explained that she had to stay in the dark for two months . A long period when she could do almost nothing.

Marie-Sophie Lacarrau: “I no longer want to take any risks”.

Monday 13 May, Marie-Sophie Lacarrau will do her big return to TF1. A moment that she is waiting for impatiently as she confided to the Parisian : “ I am so much better! Finally, I look ahead and no longer behind. Knowing that I’m back on the air on Monday is enough for my happiness. During my 4 and a half months of absence, I waited to resume a normal life and my work“.

Before being able to prepare for her return to the television set, the presenter had to wait for the green light from her doctor and above all to rehabilitate her eye . Today, there is no longer any question for her to wear contact lenses. “I don’t want to take any more risks” she declared before leaving the suspense concerning the use of glasses or not on the set of TF1. “Without, that would mean without a teleprompter, like Jean-Pierre. I did some tests. It’s quite comfortable. You’ll see on Monday” a she concluded.
