The surgery was amazing, because I was awake the whole way through. When they first said, “You’ve got to be awake for your eye,” I was going, “I don’t … No thanks.” But you actually have to be awake to keep your eyes open, and it was so quick, it was ridiculous. It was a little tiny incision was made, they hoover it out, apparently, the old, useless ones, popped in this sort of pop-up little lens thing that went in, and I could see straight away. I could see to walk back to my room.
Everyone was very jolly, there’s a bit of music playing, I was under a thing, and I was going, “Yes, hello? Is it all right? Everything going okay?” And he just went, “Don’t talk.” Because obviously I can find that difficult. But it was just such a smooth thing. Then, a few weeks later, came back and had the other eye done. I then had to sleep with a sort of, I don’t know, a sort of robot plastic cover thing on it, which was fine, so I didn’t scratch it.
