Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw undergoes emergency eye surgery

Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) revealed on Saturday that he just experienced a devastating medical emergency resulting in a serious diagnosis and subsequent treatment that will leave him temporarily blind for several weeks. 

Crenshaw, a Navy SEAL who lost his right eye in an IUD explosion while serving a deployment in Afghanistan, explained that his remaining eye was already in fragile condition after the devastating blast, and the damage sustained in his left eye suddenly deteriorated earlier this week.

In a statement released via Twitter Saturday morning, Crenshaw updated supporters on his experience and current prognosis and assured followers that he’s now recovering from the required emergency surgery in Houston for the time being.

Crenshaw wrote in the statement that he began experiencing “some dark blurry spots” in his left eye on Thursday, prompting him to visit an ophthalmologist. The physician “discovered that my retina was detaching” — a “terrifying prognosis,” though one that wasn’t entirely unexpected.

The Texas representative explained:

The blast from 2012 caused a cataract, excessive tissue damage, and extensive damage to my retina. It was always a possibility that the effects of the damage to my retina would resurface, and it appears that is exactly what has happened.

After receiving the diagnosis, Crenshaw was rushed to an emergency surgery in which his medical team placed a “glass bubble” in his eye to act as a “bandage.”

Crenshaw wrote that due to the intensity of the recovery from the surgery — he has to lie “face-down for the next week or so, unable to see anything” and will be “effectively blind” for up to a month — he’ll be taking a step back from the public eye to keep close tabs on his own health.

For months, our numbers have been going down. It took 12 months, but we were finally able to flatten the curve.

All it took was for Joe Biden to step into the White House to see all of that change. He changed the rules at the border, allowing migrants to come by the tens of thousands from Mexico and Central American countries.

With so many new people entering the country, the numbers are going back up.

Why is that?

We’re getting vaccinated. We’re socially distancing. We’re still wearing masks.

The Biden administration wants to point the finger at the Republican states that have started to open their economies and drop their mask mandates. Yet, that’s not actually the reason. States like Texas and Arizona don’t stand a chance. They’re getting thousands of migrants released into their populations every week because Biden doesn’t know how to deal with the border crisis.

COVID cases and deaths are up in many of the states where migrants are landing.

Yet, Dr. Fauci still demands that we wear two masks. He still demands that we sign up to get vaccinated.

Why? Why should we do any of that?

The liberals haven’t figured out that they’re treating the illegal immigrants better than the taxpaying citizens that vote for them every year.

If we knew for a fact that the democrats were doing everything in their power to destroy the USA, it would look just like what they are doing…

They could not BE more wrong in their choices. They have to be purposefully trying to kill us all.

Sadly, they are still supported by those in this country who are so blind they cannot see what is right in front of them.

I hope he had a good eye doctor. My son had a similar situation, and they were able to get the retina reattached. Hope Dan Crenshaw has the same luck as my son!!

You said that you would perfect that which concerns us, Please perfect his sight Lord. You are the Holy One of Glory, the only one worthy of Honor & Glory, Power & Praise….The author of salvation. Thank you Jesus…it is done. Amen

Hang in there sir. I had a detached retina. They first :spot welded the retina back in place, then inserted a “bubble” in my eye to hold the retina in place. It took a while but the bubble eventually grew smaller and finally disappeared entirely. My vision came back to normal. God speed your recovery. And thanks for your service in the military and in our congress.
