Keith Richards has undergone laser eye surgery and is "doing very well," says a spokesperson for the Rolling Stones guitarist. Richards underwent the procedure to correct his vision, which has been deteriorating in recent years.

Richards' surgery may have been done at this time to prepare for a Rolling Stones 50th anniversary tour later this year, which has been heavily rumored but has yet to be confirmed by the band.
