Pronger Discusses Injury To His Eye

from Mike Brophy of Sportsnet,

“I didn’t know what to expect,” Pronger said upon entering the Flyers dressing room. “Every serious injury I’ve ever had has started with numbness and I was numb. The yellow liquid that I could see was obviously the blood. When you open your eye and your vision is very blurry, well, you expect the worst. Everything was distorted. My whole head was numb.”

Team doctors attended to Pronger and an eye specialist was summoned. Unfortunately it took about 90 minutes for the specialist to arrive. Pronger admits the whole ordeal was frightening.

“I didn’t know if I had lost my vision or if my eye socket had been crushed,” he said.

He iced the eye area for about 30 minutes and then for 15-minute intervals with five minute breaks. He said that helped, but he was very concerned about his blurry vision.
