Joan Rivers - Joan Rivers Wearing Eye Patch After Cataract Surgery
Comedienne Joan Rivers is recovering after undergoing minor eye surgery.
The ageing TV personality had an operation on her cornea last week (begs23Jul12) after developing a cataract, which obscured the vision in her right eye.
But, the health crisis fell right in the middle of her American book tour for new novel, I Hate Everyone... Starting With Me, forcing the 80 year old to don an eye patch for protection while completing her promotional duties.
Making a reference to Chris Brown's violent 2009 altercation with former girlfriend Rihanna during an interview with U.S. chat show The View on Monday (30Jul12), she said, "It's all bruised, I look like I'm dating Chris Brown under here (the eye patch)."
