Cataract Surgery Required For Savannah GuthrieA short time ago, we wrote to you about an unfortunate accident involving a toy train and TODAY's Savannah Guthrie resulting in vision loss. Even though she had surgery to repair the damage, sadly, her vision is still "not great."
While playing with her three-year-old son Charlie, the youngster accidentally hit his mother in the eye, which left a tear in her retina. Since her eyesight has not improved, she will have to have more operations, including cataract surgery.
"When you have this retinal detachment, most people will end up developing cataracts, obviously at a much younger age than would normally be expected," she explained. "When you have cataracts, you get blurry spots and you notice it more and more. So I do."
