The injury may not seem major, but Fisher seemed visibly affected by it.
He and his partner Lindsay Arnold - who is nursing a knee injury - powered through their pain to receive the night's only flawless score (see their performance in the videos below), but backstage he admitted to reporters that "everything hurts".
"Light hurts, blinking hurts, keeping my eyes open hurts, it's hard to see but it's just one of those freak things", he shared. "It's definitely been the hardest couple of days in the competition but we're grateful that we've been able to cap these couple of days off like a pirate with one good leg and one good eye still managing to make a trip to the finals". "I've scratched the same cornea before about four years ago", he told Us, "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".
She continued, "It's frustrating because it's the semi finals and I want to dance it with Jordan, and I just hope this doesn't stop me from doing that".
For their second performance of the evening, Fisher and Arnold perfectly recreated a jive performance set to "Proud Mary" by Tina Turner, which was originally performed by Paige VanZant and Mark Ballas in Season 22 of the hit ABC dance reality show.
