Dan Crenshaw releases statement that he is 'effectively blind for about a month'


Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw posted an announcement to notify his supporters and haters that he will be somewhat out of commission for about a month following a surgery that has left him "effectively blind."

The news of this procedure was posted on two images with a long statement notifying everyone and picked up by left and right news publications. Even sites like The Guardian reported on Crenshaw's status.

Crenshaw, 37, is a veteran of the elite navy Seals force. He lost his right eye and sustained damage to his left eye in Afghanistan in 2012, when a bomb exploded.

“The blast from 2012 caused a cataract, excessive tissue damage, and extensive damage to my retina,” Crenshaw said in a statement. “It was always a possibility that the effects of the damage to my retina would resurface, and it appears that is exactly what has happened.”

Crenshaw said the retina to his left eye was found to be detaching after he went to an ophthalmologist because of dark, blurry vision, and that he underwent surgery on Friday.

“The surgery went well, but I will be effectively blind for about a month,” according to Crenshaw.

Despite our differences in politics, we should always wish good health upon each other - because if we're not healthy, then how can we argue all day on social media!
