Hogan, a 20-year-old lion and resident of the Egyptian Giza Zoo, underwent eye surgery on Tuesday to remove a cloudy lens and replace it with an artificial one, according to a statement from the zoo.

The surgery was performed by a joint medical crew from Ain Shams University’s medical faculty and the zoo's medical team.

A temporary operating theatre was set up on the zoo's premises to conduct the surgery, the statement added.
