Moto2: Marquez has eye surgery

2011 rookie Moto2 star Marc Marquez has surgery to treat the vision problems in his right eye
2011 Moto2 title runner-up Marc Marquez has undergone eye surgery to try and solve the vision problems he has been suffering since his season-ending practice fall at Sepang.

The 18-year-old Spaniard's right eye has recovered gradually over recent months, but 'had not reached the necessary level required by a professional rider.'

Therefore 'after consulting various specialists and receiving the opinion that he would have to undergo an operation once his vision had stabilised, Marquez decided to schedule this small procedure.'

Surgery was thus performed at the Outpatients Unit of Barcelona's Hospital Clinico on Monday morning.

Doctor Bernardo Sánchez Dalmau treated Marquez for 'paralysis of the upper right oblique muscle, caused by trauma to the fourth right cranial nerve' in the October 21st accident.

“The patient underwent the operation under local anaesthetic and sedation and the procedure went satisfactorily,” said Doctor Sánchez, who discharged the rider so as to allow him “to continue his recovery at home.”

Marquez 'has not ruled out' being back on his Suter in time for the first 2012 Moto2 test, which starts at Valencia on February 8th.

A decision on whether Marquez can attend the test will be taken at the end of this month.
