The Queen guitarist went in for the procedure on Friday (10Apr15) and must wear protective dark glasses for a week after the operation on doctor's orders.

In a post on, he writes, "Had my eyes lasered... Amazing! My focus is dramatically better already... Thanks, guys, for your kind messages. I learned a lot... and... I feel very cared for."

After a Twitter follower told May he looks "cool" in his protective glasses, the star responded, "Ha! Thanks... I think any coolness was accidental. But thanks... It's the cool you get from recovering from eye surgery!!"

May refused to cancel his scheduled public appearances in the aftermath of the surgery, and even attended the Olivier Awards in London on Sunday (12Apr15) wearing his special glasses.
