Last weekend, “Dancing with the Stars” pro dancer Lindsey Arnold suffered a knee injury, and a day later… her partner Jordan Fisher is dealing with his own eye injury!
While rehearsing for a performance, Arnold’s fingernail accidentally scraped his eye, causing a scratched cornea. In a video obtained by “Extra,” Jordan said, “My eye isn’t doing too hot. I went to an ophthalmologist and she basically said, where the scratch is, it’s in a good place to heal, but it’s not going to be a comfortable process. She put a contact over my cornea to help with the healing process.”
“Between Lindsay's knee and my eye, we're both not in the place that we would like to be for the finale week, but, you know, you do what you can,” he added.
Fisher recently revealed that he’s suffered an eye injury before! He told reporters, “I’ve scratched the same cornea about four years ago and only about a year and a half ago did it finally get to a point — it just takes a long time to heal. But I’m a big boy and it’s irritation more than anything and I can deal with that. I’m just so grateful that with the best partner in the entire world we have a trip to the finals, and I couldn’t be more grateful to share this night with her.”
Despite the injuries that Fisher and Arnold have sustained, they have been the favorites to win this season!
