Reid Recovering After Second Surgery

WASHINGTON — Sen. Harry Reid is recovering at his Washington residence after surgery Wednesday to restore vision in his wounded right eye.

It was Reid’s second surgery since breaking bones in his face and hurting his eye in a violent exercise accident at his home in Nevada on New Year’s Day. He also suffered broken ribs.

The Nevada Democrat’s office said Reid’s doctors hope to have a clearer prognosis for his vision in coming days. He is under instruction to rest the eye.

Reid’s office said he will return to work after next week’s recess.
