Washington (CNN)Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid will have surgery on his right eye on Monday to help him recover his full vision after suffering a recent accident while working out, according to his office.
Harry Reid to have eye surgery
The procedure will take place at George Washington University Hospital in Washington.
"Sen. Reid is expected to be released from the hospital quickly following the surgery but under doctor's orders to minimize strain in his right eye, he will have to work from his D.C. home next week," said a statement from his office issued on Wednesday. "His broken ribs are healing well and he will continue to maintain a busy schedule next week as his right eye heals."
Reid returned to his Senate office on Tuesday but did not attend President Barack Obama's State of the Union address that night. He will be in his Senate office on Thursday, according to his staff.
