(CNN)Rep. Dan Crenshaw says he is "hopeful and confident" in his recovery after undergoing emergency eye surgery earlier this month, but cautioned he has "a while to go. "

The congressman underwent emergency surgery at DeBakey VA Medical Center in Houston to re-attach his left retina.

Crenshaw said Friday that surgeons put a "silicon buckle" around his retina and used a laser to "glue" around the retina's edges.

On his third deployment as a US Navy SEAL in 2012, Crenshaw lost his right eye after he was hit by an IED blast in Afghanistan.

That blast also caused a cataract, excessive tissue damage and extensive damage to his left retina, he said.

Crenshaw noted that he is unable to fly for at least six weeks, but will remain engaged on legislative issues.
