Bob Costas got his infamous case of Olympic pink eye from botched Botox, a source claims to Page Six.
NBCs prime-time Olympics host, who had to take a six-day absence after coming down with viral conjunctivitis in both eyes, contracted the infection after a Botox procedure to smooth out wrinkles prior to the Olympics. Our source said, Bobs eye infection was due to botched Botox. This isnt the first time hes had it.
NBC strongly denies that Costas who arrived to host the games in Sochi with a forehead smoother than the Olympic luge track developed the infection from a Botox procedure.
A spokesperson from NBC Sports insisted to us, This has zero truth to this. Zero.
Costas was forced to take nearly a week off from the Olympics, with Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira sitting in for him after the infection spread from his left to his right eye. He told reporters later that it caused light sensitivity and blurred vision. The worst three days of it I was primarily in a darkened room, he said.
Doctors say it is rare to contract an infection from a Botox injection, unless there was contamination or the patient suffered an allergic reaction. New York plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Warfel, who has not treated Costas, told Page Six: If the Botox procedure is done properly, the patient shouldnt get pink eye. It is highly unlikely unless the procedure was unclean, when the patient could contract cellulitis of the eyelid [symptoms include redness and swelling of the eyelid].

How old is the little Commie Creep?
"....the midget was getting botox in his heels because his lifts didn"t"
Gee...can’t these Obama butt kissers just age gracefully....
It’s not like Costas is ancient looking...
Couldn’t have happened to a nicer gun grabber.....
He was either stoned, possessed, or that’s one of the worst cases of “Pink Eye” in history. (perhaps all three?)
Awww, poor statist bastard.
He’ll be 62 March 22nd.
Well now that that’s settled let’s talk about his hairpiece —
I’m not buying this - having worked for an Ophthalmologist, the only way you get conjunctivitis is having it spread to you. It’s an infection that has nothing to do with botox injections. The only way botox would have had anything to do with it is if the person who administered the shots was unsanitary.
Who gets botox in their eyes? Does not pass the smell test.
Our source said, Bobs eye infection was due to botched Botox. This isnt the first time hes had it.
It wasn’t the first time for Botox or it wasn’t the first time for the eye infection?
My dermatologist just did 2 vials of Radiesse in my chin It came with its own syringe and needles all nearly and hygienicly wrapped. She said everything comes like that now.....even Botox. So yeah, this is BS.
He may have gotten it from an unsanitary pillow at the hotel where he was staying for the Olympics. I saw how conditions at some of the hotels there were not so great.
