Venezuelan singer has left eye operated in Miami

Miami, May 11 (EFE).- Veneuelan singer Oscar D'Leon had an operation on his left eye at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami after suffering a household accident that forced him to suspend the concerts he had scheduled in Uruguay, Argentina and Chile.

"Right now Oscar has just come out of the operating room," his agent Oswald Ponte wrote Friday on Twitter account @OscarDLeon.

Ponte said that D'Leon "remains hospitalized in Miami after an operation of more than two hours at the Bascom Palmer," a center specializing in problems of sight.

The agent also uploaded to the social network a photo of D'Leon lying in a hospital bed with his left eye covered with a bandage.

The Venezuelan singer has a blood clot in the left eye and "specialists are very optimistic that they can recover a small percentage of its sight," Ponte said in a previous message on the same Twitter account.

Toward the end of April, D'Leon suffered a bad contusion of the left eye when a trunk fell on him that he was trying to stow on a closet shelf. He was taken to the Bascom Palmer where he had his first operation.

The agent believes the singer will recover and will be able to carry out his schedule of concerts in Chile, Argentina and Uruguay in the first week of July."
