Talk to The Herald Sun., George said his first thought was that he might & # 39; lose his eyesight & # 39 ;.

& # 39; It is something that has knocked me before six and made me realize that I am not a teflon & # 39 ;, he told the publication.

George explained that the problems started after his first surgery, that doctors discovered he was bleeding at the back of the eye.

& # 39; When the bleeding stopped, they discovered that I had torn my retina in different places, a consequence of the impact, & # 39; he said.

He went on to say that days after the first operation he was forced to perform another emergency operation & # 39; to save his eyesight & # 39 ;.

The accident occurred during a social game of squash, where the ball hit the cook's right eye, causing him to run into the operating room.

The TV star revealed that surgeons were rushing to remove the lens from his damaged eye, along with the jelly of the eyeball.

He went on to say that his eye is filled with oil, and sees that he again undergoes surgery as soon as it is empty.

& # 39; I will live without a lens for the next six weeks and have this oil in my eyeball, which holds everything together, & # 39; he said.

Hurt: & # 39; I will live without a lens for the next six weeks and have this oil in my eyeball that actually holds everything together, & # 39; George said over his eye

George revealed a pirate field last month after his operation at the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital in Melbourne.

When George went to his Instagram account at that time, he was silent about the details of the accident, instead thanking the hospital staff.

& # 39; A huge lesson for me today: wear protective glasses when playing squash, & # 39; he said.

Prior to the MasterChef premiere this season, George was spotted in a number of interviews with sunglasses.

He told Fitzy & Wippa from Nova FM last month it was to protect his eyes while the healing process was taking place.

# Bright lights absolutely punish me right now, while this eye is healing. So those of you who thought I had a great night … I wish that! & # 39;
