Prime Minister Antonis Samaras's surgery finished successfully. It had to adjust the detached retina of his eye. It was conducted by Ophthalmology Professor Panos Teodosiadis. Since it is a delicate eye intervention, Samaras will not be able to fly on a plane for the next 15 days. This means that most probably he will not participate in the summit of the European Union, which is scheduled for the 28th and 29th of June in Brussels. This, however, will be finally decided tomorrow when his doctors will make some additional examinations of the Prime Minister.
Antonis Samaras had had a problem with his eye for several days, but because of the elections and the consultations on the formation of the cabinet he had postponed his visit to the hospital. Yesterday, doctors determined that surgery was inevitable.
The condition of the new finance minister Vassilis Rapanos is also improving. He was also urgently taken to hospital yesterday after he collapsed. He was subjected to detailed examinations which will end tomorrow when there will be an official medical release. But as his condition is good, doctors believe that they will be able to discharge him as early as Monday.
Prime Minister Antonis Samaras will also be discharged from hospital on Monday.
