Julia Barretto underwent a minor eye procedure early today, March 1, 2019.
Her mom Marjorie Barretto's post did not indicate what happened to the young actress's eye, but some of the fans had a hunch: Sty.
One commented, "Naalis na ba yung kuliti niya sa eyes? visible na talaga.... get well soon."
Sty is a red painful lump near the edge of eyelid that may look like a boil or a pimple.
In most cases, it will disappear on its own in a few days.
Otherwise, an eye doctor can drain the fluid after injecting a numbing agent into the eyelid, and making a small incision in the bum.
Julia's procedure took about 15 to 20 minutes. Guess who came to give her moral support?
Marjorie write, "With only 3 hours of sleep, @erichgg [Erich Gonzales] came to hold Julia’s hand during a minor eye procedure.."
Julia and Erich, otherwise known as JulRich, started their friendship in 2014.
In a recent interview, Erich told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) the sweetest things they have done for each other, "Siguro, just by being there for each other.
"Yun talaga yun, through ups and downs. Kahit maliliit na bagay, yun naman talaga yung nagma-matter."
