Melanie “Mel B” Brown’s vision has been restored after she was temporarily blinded last week.
According to U.K. outletThe Sun, the 43-year-old singer went to the hospital on Friday, complaining of being blinded in her right eye. (Her left was permanently damaged following a laser eye surgery gone wrong in the ’90s.)
After her vision returned, the singer reportedly left the hospital and returned to rehearsals for theupcoming Spice Girls tour.
“She’s doing fine now, she’s not blind,” a source tells PEOPLE. “This has happened before. She has herpes in her eye, so this can happen.”
“She told the doctor she was blind because she couldn’t see but her eye is OK,” the source says. “They gave her some drops and she’s good now. It was nothing major.”
The source adds thatrehearsals for the tour, which kicks off on Friday, are going smoothly.
“They just had the friends and family show and it went well, her youngest daughter came out. She’s very involved with the tour and she’s excited about it. All is going well,” the source adds.
