Queen’s Brian May undergoes eye surgery
QUEEN guitarist Brian May eye surgery this afternoon.
Earlier today, the 73-year-old musician took his instagram to share a mirror selfie for her 2.8 million followers, showing off in her face mask and hospital gown. He wrote in an accompanying caption, “A vision! All prepped and waiting…for a little eye surgery.
“I’m in good hands. No need to worry. All of this in a day’s work…it should really improve my concentration – AND my stereoscopic vision.”
After the operation, he returned to the platform, sharing a new mirror selfie showing himself with a bandage over his left eye. He wrote: “And….it’s all done!! I really didn’t feel a thing. It was all done with local anesthetic and a tiny bit of sedation – so I was conscious throughout – and fascinated by this incredible procedure.Only about 20 minutes.
“The patch stays in place until tomorrow morning. It’s an iPatch! So obviously I’m going to have to take it off and put it back on soon. A big thank you to my ophthalmologist the awesome Robin Hamiltonand my anesthesiologist Conand all the lovely people at the clinic in London who took such kind care of me.”
MayThe eye surgery came after several health issues in 2020, including a heart attack, stomach bleeding and other complications.
Last October, the guitarist told The Express that he thought the coronavirus was to blame for his terrifying health ordeal because he was “the fittest person on it QUEEN tour we did” and “didn’t check any of the boxes for having a heart attack.
“I have a theory, which is this: I am aware that I had a very bad cough for most of this tour. And sometimes I felt quite gloomy and I thought I just felt tired” , he told the time.
“I think it’s possible that I had the COVID virus at the start of the Korea, Japan and Australia tour in January [of 2020]and went through it, but it thickened the blood, which seems to be the case, and that could have been the trigger that gave me the heart attack,” he continued.
“I thought it was too early to get it [COVID] but the evidence now seems to be that the virus was there,” May added.
