The operation lasted a minute barely, reports La Gazzetta Dello Sport, and was necessary to correct astigmatism.
It was performed by Angelo Appiotti, the same doctor who carried out a similar surgery on Milan legend Kaka in 2007 and other former Rossoneri players such as Ignazio Abate and Marco Borriello.
The surgery won’t affect Tatarusanu in any way and the Romania international can already do any activity. According to the report, he could have even played today if Serie A had not stopped for the World Cup break.
“Ciprian discovered this visual defect a year ago,” said Appiotti.
“I visited him and noticed the problem: he did not use any correction, but he could live with astigmatism through accommodation.”
The doctor added that the goalkeeper’s reaction time would improve thanks to surgery.
Tatarusanu, 36, became Milan’s starting goalkeeper in October following Mike Maignan’s calf injury during the international break.
He has conceded 12 goals in 12 appearances so far this season, keeping four clean sheets.
His contract at San Siro runs out in the summer.
