British actor Will Mellor, famous for his roles in ‘Coronation Street’ and the 90s hit show ‘Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps’, recently underwent lens replacement surgery following a rapid decline in his vision since he reached his forties. The 47-year-old shared the journey with his followers on Instagram, openly revealing his concerns before the procedure and the relief he felt after it was successfully completed.

Mellor’s Struggle with Vision

Mellor described how his deteriorating eyesight had gotten to a point where he needed glasses for almost every task. Due to his unique case of having one short-sighted and one long-sighted eye, he was not eligible for laser eye surgery. This led him to seek a permanent solution through lens replacement surgery at OCL Vision in London. After the surgery, the actor expressed optimism about the possibility of never needing glasses again.

Streaming Services Could Provide a Platform for the Show’s Return

Mellor proposed an alternative path for the show’s return, suggesting that streaming platforms like Netflix or Amazon could be potential hosts. He highlighted the public’s fondness for nostalgia and the constant need for comedy in people’s lives, indicating that a revival could be a bright spot in the increasingly digital entertainment landscape.
