'Today' Show Co-Host Savannah Guthrie Undergoes Retina Surgery After Suffering Major Eye Injury

By

Yikes! You may have noticed that Today show co-host Savannah Guthrie has been absent from her usual position on the popular morning news program. Last month, the broadcast anchor called-in on Wednesday, Nov. 27, to explain why she was not at work.  

Unfortunately, the 47-year-old suffered a serious eye injury before the Thanksgiving holiday that left her temporarily blind in her right eye. Savannah phoned-in to the Today show the following week to give an update to viewers and her fellow colleagues on how she was doing post-accident. So, what happened to Savannah, and how did the anchor suffer extreme trauma to her right eye?
