Koivu’s Vision Still Fuzzy

from RDS (translated):
The captain of the Canadiens, Saku Koivu, declared that he could have to wear a contact lens in his left eye to play this season because of a caratact. [On the first day of training camp, he said] that his problems of vision did not improve. If the situation does not change, he could have to undergo a surgical operation. He specified that if an operation were to be necessary, he wishes to be able to await the end of the season before [going under the knife].
continued added 3:18pm, Now up at TSN,
"Obviously, the best scenario would be to get it done at the end of the year, but right now, we're going to wait and see how it will progress." He said it is common for cataracts to develop after injuries or surgery to the eyes. This one has caused his vision to be "not as sharp as a month and a half ago."
