    A South Carolina woman who gouged her eyes out during a meth-induced psychotic episode in which she thought she could save the world has received a pair of prosthetic eyeballs that make her 'appear more normal to the outside world,' according to a report.

    Kaylee Muthart, of Anderson, was 20 when she ripped out her eyes, squishing them with her hands, in February 2018 after snorting and injecting tainted methamphetamine, according to a report in People magazine.

    'The drugs take your fears and beliefs and amplify them,' she told the mag. 'I thought I had to take my eyes out to survive and save the world.'

    Since the horrific act, Muthart has pledged to quit drugs for good and entered rehab, The Sun reported.

    On Wednesday, she finally received her prosthetic eyes from Dr. Joseph Gorrin of Gorrin's Clinic in Greenville, according to the news outlet.

    'I was so excited to get them,' Muthart, who is enrolled in blind school, told The Sun. 'I just wanted to appear more normal to the outside world.'

    Her boyfriend Alex George, 42, said it 'melted' his heart to see her receive her new eyeballs.

    'She was never any different to me, but I know she's wanted this for a very long time and I'm so happy she has this now. I felt so much joy, love, appreciation and thanks to God,' he told the outlet.

    'Seeing Kaylee happy makes me happy. She is always an upbeat and positive person, but this made her extra happy. It was incredible to be able to look in her eyes,' George added.

    Muthart FaceTimed with her mom, Katy Tompkins, to show her the new look

    'She cried with happiness too,' Muthart told The Sun. 'She is so excited for me and this next chapter in my life.'

    Muthart said she celebrated by going to dinner with George at an Applebees where they had their first date.

    'Before we had dinner I put on my own makeup for the first time since I lost my sight. That felt very special,' she said.

    Muthart, who will soon receive a guide dog, said she has learned a 'decent amount' of Braille, can cook, wash clothes, make a bed and even look after pets ' and plans to get her high school diploma and go to college.

    'I've come such a long way from two years ago,' she told The Sun. 'Coming off meth was awful, physically and mentally. There was hallucinations and psychosis, but I overcame it thanks to God.'

    OMG.

    Looks like her mom has posted a lot about her daughter and updates on how she is doing. She seems to be doing well and I'm happy for her. Sad something horrific like this had to happen, though.

    Holy Shit that is shocking that she is not dead after that incident but hope for the best.

    Yeah, looks like she was a hot mess in her younger years (sounds like her Mom had it rough too). Kaylee appears to be happy and doing well, and her boyfriend seems loving and supportive. Really sad that it took such a catastrophic event to get her there. I wish her continued strength to stay well.

    Bad choice of eyeball humour on her old FB page:

    You are talking to a woman who has laughed in the face of death, sneered at doom and chuckled at catastrophe.
