I only remember the main outline, and most likely it wasn't the sole focus of the movie. More of a sub-plot or perhaps a sub-story in an omnibus.

There's an entartainer (could be an idol/actress/singer), who loses her sight (either due to an assault or an illness). She is forgotten by the show-biz world, until one day a fan appears before her and proclaims that he'll care for her from now on (he may or may not confess his love as well at that point).

Genre: Drama, seemed Shunji Iwai-esque in style,

Production date: late 90s/early 2000s

Any ideas?

One of the 3 stories in Takashi Kitano's Dolls from 2002 is about a female pop idol whose face is disfigured in an accident (she loses an eye) and she becomes a recluse. A devoted fan then blinds himself and she allows him into her life. Could this be it? Here's the trailer.

Yes, thanks, that's surely it. To think I'd forget the key part to the story there (the fan voluntarily blinding himself). – scrwtp Jul 6 '14 at 16:00
