It has been a rough year for Brian May ...
After tearing his gluteus maximus - the main muscle of the hip that forms the buttocks - while gardening and then suffering from a heart attack due to three blocked arteries during the UK's lockdown last year, the Queen guitarist has now undergone eye surgery.
Taking to Instagram, the music legend shared a series of photos of himself in hospital.
Alongside a selfie of him in a hospital gown, he wrote: "One Vision! All prepped and waiting ... for a little bit of eye surgery. I'm in good hands. No need to worry."
The 73-year-old musician added: "All in a day's work ... it should really improve my focus - AND my stereoscopic vision. It's a Piece o' Cake ... eeek!"
May posted another picture after the operation of himself wearing an eyepatch.
Giving his followers an update on his condition, he wrote: "And .... all done!! I really didn't feel a thing. It was all done with local anaesthetic 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!," he joked
The guitarist later revealed he had a cataract operation.
Get better soon, Bri!
