Savannah Guthrie returns to Today and shares 'graphic' photo of the 'massive ...

Savannah Guthrie has shared before-and-after pictures of her retina to demonstrate her spectacular recovery after it was torn in an accident involving her son.

Guthrie, 48, had to undergo eye surgery in early December after her three-year-old boy Charley accidentally poked her in the eye with a toy truck while sitting on her lap late November.

She lost sight in one eye following surgery, but as she returned to the Today show on Monday, the anchor revealed the good job doctors did to mend her.   

'Actually this isn't gross at all but if retina pictures aren't your cup of tea then don't swipe!,' she warned approximately 846k Instagram followers. 'The first pic is my retina "before" - with a massive tear... that's that big dark spot in the middle of the pic.

Guthrie added in the social media post that came with a warning of a 'graphic image' and to 'swipe with caution': 'I'm so grateful to the careful doctors who operated on me and very hopeful about getting most of my vision back eventually!! Here's to 20/20 in 2020! #retinasofinstagram.'

She shared the scans after earlier posting pictures of her return to the NBC morning show.
