Queen’s Brian May shared via Instagram that he recently underwent eye surgery.

May wrote, “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. It’s a Piece o’ Cake … eeek!”

Once he was finished, he shared a photo with a bandage over his eye along with the caption, “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. 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.”

May then followed up thanking fans for their wishes saying, “Thank you for the incredible response you gave me. I didn’t expect that; I was just putting a few items of information up about my eye. You’ve been so kind. Thanks for all of the care and sympathy you’ve given me. [laughs]”
