TV star Claudia Winkleman to have op next week

Claudia Winkleman is to have eye surgery next week.

The presenter says her minus 14 vision has become so poor she’s struggling to lead a normal life.

‘I can’t even begin to tell you how blind I am,’ explains Claudia, 38.

‘It’s
embarrassing. I can’t read the autocue. My eyes have deteriorated so
badly, I’m not meant to drive. So I booked into the doctor.’

Claudia – who is severely short-sighted – will have strong artificial lenses fitted at London’s Moorfields Eye Hospital next week. 

She will then have laser treatment to correct a stigmatism a month later. 

‘I had to ask him a few questions like am I going to die?’ Claudia tells The Sun. ‘To which [the doctor] laughed at me.

‘And could my eye pop out and roll? He replied: “You’re quite highly strung yet hilarious.”‘
