The Nobel peace prize laureate, once seen as the face of Myanmar's struggle for democracy, has been criticised for her failure to speak out against the military crackdown, which the United Nations has called "ethnic cleansing".
The Rohingya violence has incubated a humanitarian crisis on both sides of the border and piled intense global pressure on Aung San Suu Kyi to condemn the army campaign, which the UN has described as having all the hallmarks of "ethnic cleansing".
He declined to comment on the specific nature of the operation but said it was minor and that Suu Kyi, who is state counsellor and foreign minister, would return to hospital for surgery on the other eye on April 16.
The NLD tabled a special bill, mentioning Nobel peace laureate by name, that would create the post of a National Presidential Adviser, giving her freedom to coordinate intra-ministerial affairs and help influence the executive.
Aung San Suu Kyi will become foreign minister in Myanmar's new civilian government, her party said on Tuesday, giving the democracy champion a formal position despite being blocked from the presidency.
