Hatcher was injured on the Desperate Housewives set Tuesday April 25, 2006 when a light bulb exploded and shards of glass lodged in the actor's eye
Tuesday April 25th, 2006 was Teri Hatcher's bad day. The actress has on that day suffered an eye injury when a light bulb exploded on the set of ABC's "Desperate Housewives".
"Glass lodged in my right eye and proceeded to scratch my cornea," Hatcher told People magazine. "I was taken to a wonderful eye doctor, and now am wearing a most glamorous eye patch over the right half of my face. I like to look at the positive and the good news is, the cornea is the fastest healing tissue in the body."
And concerning the incident, Hatcher says she should be back to production in two days and explains, "I'm in some pain, but trying to see the humor in the oddity of it all. No one was at fault."
