Savannah Guthrie took off work early Monday for more eye surgery.
The “Today” co-anchor said her vision problems were “not over” and that she was leaving to have a cataract removed.
She said she’s been dealing with a big blurry spot, and co-anchor Hoda Kotb detailed Guthrie’s other problems, including wave-like vision and distortion.
“I feel like it’s Christmas morning because if they remove this cataract I’ll really be able to see, and I’ve had a hard time seeing,” Guthrie said.
She might be returning to work this week.
“Hopefully next time I see you, I’ll really see you!” Guthrie told Kotb and Carson Daly.
Guthrie had put off the procedure because of the coronavirus pandemic, Today reported.
