Greece's new Prime Minister Antonis Samaras will miss this week's EU summit while he recovers from eye surgery.

He underwent routine surgery on Saturday for a damaged retina, with the operation said to have been a success.

Samaras was sworn in as prime minister only last Wednesday to head a three-party pro-austerity coalition.

The "troika" of rescue lenders have also postponed a planned visit to Athens due to Samaras' poor health.
