Phillip Schofield reveals eye surgery left him in tears
Phillip Schofield underwent eye surgery while on summer vacation and posted an update today.
The presenter returned to This Morning after the summer with co-star Holly Willoughby.
Over the summer, Phil underwent eye surgery to remove ‘floaters’ that were affecting his vision.

Speaking to Holly about how he felt after the operation, Phil said: “Absolutely amazing. We’ll talk about that later in the show.
He continues: “I have, and I must say for a week… because I just had my right eye redone, my left eye at the beginning of the summer… a dilated pupil.
“I have to keep him dilated with drops for another week to help him heal.”
Later in the program, Phil opened up during a segment on the condition of the eyes.
He said: “I had them both done over the summer and the first time I lay down in the garden with a clear blue sky I burst into tears.
“It was the most amazing thing. The first time in decades there was no trash in my vision.
It comes after Phil announced on Instagram that he had the surgery.

In a message alongside the doctor who performed the operation, Phil said: “FLOATS: Details as promised if you suffer from debilitating floaters.
“First of all, no part of my treatment and surgery was gifted and I was not asked to publish. It is also innovative and expensive.
“I had vitrectomy surgery limited by the pars plana. It didn’t hurt!”
Phil continued: “If you were told ‘just live with them’ that’s not necessarily true, I’m sure there are exceptions but they can be fixed.
“For the first time in many years, right now I’m looking at a clear blue sky, it’s changing my mood/spirit and my life.
