Queen‘s Brian May underwent eye surgery on Friday (May 20th). The legendary guitarist posted a selfie on Instagram as he was prepped for surgery, 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.”

The 73-year-old May later posted a shot with a bandage over his left eye, writing: “And. . .  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 the whole thing — and fascinated by this amazing procedure. Only about 20 mins.”

He went on to post, “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 anesthetist Con, and all the lovely folks at the London Clinic who have taken care of me so kindly.”
