Teri Hatcher suffered an eye injury when a light bulb exploded on the set of ABC’s “Desperate Housewives,” People magazine reported Wednesday.

“Glass lodged in my right eye and proceeded to scratch my cornea,” Hatcher was quoted as telling the magazine following Tuesday’s accident. “I was taken to a wonderful eye doctor, and am now wearing a most glamorous eye patch over the right half of my face.”

Hatcher, 41, said she should be back to work in two days and was trying to see the humor “in the oddity of it all.”

The injury forced the actress to cancel her appearance at a Tuesday night party for the AmberWatch Foundation, which is dedicated to preventing child abduction and molestation. Hatcher is the group’s new spokeswoman.
