Queen guitarist Brian May underwent eye surgery on Thursday afternoon. Queen ‘Reject’ New Adam Lambert Song?
May posted a photo of himself in a mask with an eye patch, writing, “One Vision ! All prepped and waiting … for a little bit of eye surgery.
“I’m in good hands. No need to worry. All in a day’s work … it should really improve my focus – AND my stereoscopic vision.”
He later posted a photo with a bandage of his eye after the sugery, “And …. all done !! I really didn’t feel a thing. It was all done with local anaesthetic and a tiny bit of sedation – So I was conscious throughout the whole thing – and fascinated by this amazing procedure. Only about 20 mins.
The patch stays on until tomorrow morning. It’s an iPatch ! So obviously I’ll soon have to take it off and put it back on again. Big thanks to my eye surgeon the brilliant Robin Hamilton, and my anaesthetist Con, and all the lovely folks at the London Clinic who have taken care of me so kindly.”
May suffered a heart attack and stomach hemorrhage last year. May told Express last October that he was the ‘fittest person’ on the last Queen tour, “I have one theory, which is: I’m conscious that I had a pretty bad cough most of the way through that tour. And some of the time I felt pretty grim and I thought I was just feeling tired.”
“I think it’s possible that I had the COVID virus early on in the tour of Korea, Japan and Australia in January [of 2020], and got through it, but it’s thickened the blood, which apparently it does, and that could have been the trigger that gave me the heart attack.”
“I thought it was too early to get it [COVID] but the evidence now seems to be that the virus was around.”
