[EMBEDCODE {}] Speaking on The Talk on Tuesday, host Sara Gilbert reacted to the news that her sitcom mom, Roseanne Barr, is going blind as a result of macular degeneration and glaucoma.

"I love Roseanne so much, and she's such a strong person and such an important person in my life," Gilbert said during a segment on the show. "I know she's a fighter and I know she's strong. I truly believe that if anyone can do it, she'll have her sight as long as possible."
