(Gibson) Keith Richards is said to be doing well after undergoing laser eye surgery to correct his deteriorating vision, a spokeswoman for the Rolling Stones guitarist has revealed. According to London's Daily Mirror, the veteran rocker underwent the procedure prior to Christmas, in London.

A source close to Richards said, "He's music's ultimate survivor but not even the seemingly immortal Keith Richards can stop the march of time. It was a harmless, quick procedure and he's very happy with the results."

It's speculated that Richards may have had the surgery in preparation for a Rolling Stones 50th anniversary tour, a possibility that's been heavily rumored but not confirmed. Richards and Mick Jagger have reportedly put aside recent differences and are in talks with promoters about the viability of such a project. The very first Rolling Stones show took place at London's Marquee Club on July 12, 1962. more on this story
