Davidson, who is 24 years old, suffers from Crohn’s disease, which is an autoimmune disorder. Symptoms include chronic inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, as well as recurring chronic diarrhea, weight loss and abdominal pain.

According to the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation, 10% of those suffering from Crohn’s disease also experience eye issues such as dry eyes, redness and inflammation of the eyes.
