The Queen has surgery to remove cataract from her eye

The Queen has surgery to remove cataract from her eye

Queen Elizabeth got a chance to have a surgery, which removed the cataract from her eye. Last month, the British monarch got rid of that defect from her eye, Buckingham Palace has confirmed.

Queen was treated as a day patient at the private King Edward VII hospital in London where the ophthalmologists did their best to help the Her Majesty. According to the royal spokesman, Queen “successfully underwent a short, planned procedure” last month.

As we all noted in recent weeks, the monarch has been seen wearing sunglasses at events including Buckingham Palace garden parties and the Royal Windsor Horse Show. Despite the surgery and rehabilitation period, Queen Elizabeth did not cancel or postpone any engagements, showing the ability to follow protocol under any circumstances.

In July 1995, the Queen Mother had a cataract operation at the age of 94, that times the operation required a longer period of rehabilitation. Knowing the family history of cataracts, which can increase a person’s risk of developing them, Queen Elizabeth’s doctors advised her an innovative cataract surgery.

In fact, such an eye surgery is the most common operation in the UK, it involves replacing the cloudy lens with an artificial one. The procedure lasts 30 to 45 minutes, and take four to six weeks for patients to fully recover.

In recent weeks, wearing a dark glasses, Queen looked extremely stylish and elegant, she is still one of the most beautiful women in the world!
