The Italy international wears contact lenses when playing but recently has experienced problems with them because of some instances of conjunctivitis.
Man City hopes the 22-year-old could be playing again within two weeks and have waited for the international break to book him in for the procedure. He will, however, miss the Azzurri's World Cup qualifiers against Bulgaria and Malta.
