Frost had her right eye removed following the shooting. Frost lost her right eye and underwent three hours of surgery to fix her shattered skull and forehead, reports the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Frost was injured by a gunshot wound to the head on the night of the shooting. Her left eye was unharmed.
