Sen. Dan Coats is recovering from eye surgery

Sen. Dan Coats, R-Ind., is sidelined for a few days to recover from eye surgery performed at an outpatient clinic in Indianapolis, his office said Tuesday.

No details on the previously scheduled procedure were provided. Matt Lahr, communications director for Coats, said Coats cannot travel during his recuperation.

Lahr said in an email that “it was preventative surgery, he is resting at home and the senator plans to attend Indy 500 festivities this weekend and hold events across the state next week.”

The Senate is in session this week but is off next week.
