Rabat – A picture of King Mohammed VI following his eye surgey in Paris went viral on social media.
The picture was published by an unofficial Facebook page of King Mohammed VI which has more than 3.5 million fans.
The monarch is seen in a store wearing an eye patch on his left eye while another person stood by his side.
King Mohammed VI is pictured dressed casually in a dark blue T-shirt and gey pork pie hat with a purple band.
The picture was widely shared by Facebook users. The page’s fans expressed their wishes for the King of speedy recovery.
The surgegry took place on Wednesday at the the Quinze-Vingt Hospital in Paris.
His doctors, Jean Philippe Nordmann and Abdelaziz Maaouni said in a statement that the monarch developed a “pterygium”, also called “Surfer’s Eye”.
Pterygium is a growth that develops on the conjunctiva or mucous membrane that covers the white part of the eye. It is said to be common among surfers and people who spend a lot of time outdoors.
The doctors said the King would wear a patch for protection and will have to rest for 15 days so that his eye can heal properly.
