Myanmar'south new de facto boss Suu Kyi has cataract surgery

Aung San Suu Kyi, Myanmar'south new de facto leader, has undergone an eye operation for cataracts.

The state-controlled Global New Light of Myanmar newspaper on Sun cited sources in Suu Kyi'south ruling National League for Democracy party as saying the successful operation was performed at a special hospital in the capital, Naypyitaw.

Cataracts, a clouding of the lens in the eye, is generally associated with aging, and can lead to blindness if left untreated. Suu Kyi is 70.

The newspaper said the operation was performed Saturday, allowing her recuperation to get space over the extended traditional New Year holiday this week. It said she'll return for an operation on her other eye in mid-April, a standard practice.
