BBC Presenter Lucy Owen Provides Health Update Following Eye Treatment

…By Alan Peterson for TDPel Media. BBC presenter Lucy Owen has given an update on her health following treatment for an eye condition that could have resulted in the loss of her vision.


She revealed that it will take a few months for her vision to fully recover after the treatment.

Rushed Surgery for Detached Retina

Earlier this week, the 52-year-old presenter disclosed that she was urgently undergoing surgery for a detached retina, which was detected by an optician.

Lucy, known for her work on BBC Wales Today and BBC X-Ray, which was recently discontinued, seems to be recuperating well at home, as indicated in her recent update.


Recovery and Gratitude

Taking to Twitter, Lucy shared an image and expressed her gratitude for the supportive messages she received.

She mentioned that she has to lie on her side for a week as part of the recovery process and expects her vision to gradually return over the next few months.

However, she acknowledged that this might pose challenges when it comes to reading from an autocue.

Lucy also shared a heartfelt gesture from her Wales Today colleagues, expressing how fortunate she feels to work with such wonderful people.

Detached Retina and Treatment

A detached retina occurs when the thin layer at the back of the eye becomes loose. Prompt treatment is necessary to prevent permanent damage to one’s sight.


Lucy revealed that she underwent a procedure to correct the issue, and she expressed immense gratitude to the NHS for saving her vision.

She specifically thanked Mr. Williams and the incredible team at Cardiff and Vale University Health Board for their swift intervention.

Additionally, she expressed appreciation for her optician, who promptly identified the problem and ensured she received timely medical attention.

Lucy concluded by urging others to keep a close eye on their own eye health.
