Savannah Guthrie's Fans Worry about Her Eyes after She Posted Photo of a Paper Airplane
Television personality Savannah Guthrie has some of the most devoted fans, a fact that was proven when she shared a picture of a paper airplane on her Instagram page.
The "Today" show co-host shared a snapshot that showed her holding a pink paper airplane. In the caption to the post, Guthrie wrote, "I believe I can fly."
The photo brought back memories for some of Guthrie's fans as they reminisced on how they used to design and fly colorful paper planes in their childhood days.
However, some of her fans were greatly worried about her eyes and cautioned her on flying the plane. One fan advised her to watch her eyes while the plane is flying.
A second told Guthrie not to let the paper plane get in her eyes, while a third person asked the co-host to watch her eyes when her kids are flying the plane. One can understand why fans are worried about Guthrie's eyes, given her experience with an eye accident in the past.
That achievement brought tears to the television anchor's face as she noted while sharing an update that her vision had greatly improved.
In November 2019, The talk show host opened about her eye injury after her son, Charles, accidentally hit her in the right eye with his toy train's pointy end.
It caused Guthrie a tear in her retina and loss of vision. She was also out of work for a couple of days following the accident and received multiple treatments.
Despite the injury, she was able to host Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade last year along with "Today" co-host Hoda Kotb. However, she had to be careful to avoid vigorous movements due to her eye's delicate nature.
In December, she underwent retinal attachment surgery due to the injury. However, the surgery caused a blurry spot to develop in her eyes, meaning she needed cataract surgery to correct the blurry vision.
In July 2020, Guthrie underwent cataract surgery, which made her see clearly for the first time in months. That achievement brought tears to the television anchor's face as she noted while sharing an update that her vision had greatly improved.
Guthrie also said her eyes would get better and better and said she would be throwing out her reading glasses as she no longer needed them.
Guthrie is married to Michael Feldman, with whom she shares a daughter, Vale, 6, and a son, Charles Max, 3. She would have read some of her fans' advice and surely took caution to prevent any eye accident from occurring.
