The sad news of the day. Sadly, it’s about the beloved actor “Jack Abbott”

Jack Abbott, the patriarch of the Abbott family, has been away for a few weeks on an unplanned business trip, as shown on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS. But there was a real-life reason why Peter Bergman, who played Jack in the serial opera, had to immediately take a break from acting. In order to fix a detached retina, Bergman had to have immediate eye surgery, as he described to Soap Opera Digest.

Bergman’s medical emergency seemed to come out of nowhere. The actor spotted an odd occurrence on the inside corner of his left eye while en route to see his family on California’s central coast, but he kept it a secret. He recounted, “All through the evening, I was seeing something creeping into my vision, and towards the conclusion of that night, it was like a curtain closing in toward the center of my seeing.
