While a guest on Paramount+’s The Checkup with Dr. David Agus, actor Ashton Kutcher shared more details about his battle with a rare disorder that took away his hearing, vision, and ability to walk.

As Kutcher admitted the illness came on suddenly. “I woke up one day and was having vision issues [and] could hardly see,” Kutcher told CBS News medical contributor, Dr. David Agus. “[It] knocked out my hearing, which threw off my equilibrium, my balance and I couldn’t walk.”

Kutcher admitted that the sudden on slot of symptoms was jarring. “There’s a standard you become accustomed to in your life, like being able to see clearly. And then suddenly, you can’t see.”

Ashton Kutcher was eventually diagnosed with a “weird, super-rare form of vasculitis.”
