On October 21, Beijing time, SIPG officially announced that goalkeeper Yan Junling will undergo eye surgery and will take a long time to recover. According to Wang Xiaorui, a reporter from Sports Weekly, Yan Junling will take a truce for at least 3 months.
According to the doctor's judgment, Yan Junling must first ensure rest, followed by surgery as soon as possible. According to reports, it is suspected that a fracture of the inner wall of the orbit caused muscle and nerve damage. Although in medicine, this kind of injury can also be treated conservatively, but it is mainly determined by referring to the degree of orbital injury. Furthermore, the degree of optic nerve damage will also determine the speed of vision recovery.
Generally speaking, even if Yan Junling has finished the operation, he still takes some drugs to promote nerve recovery. It is understood that Yan Junling has been unable to catch up with all the remaining matches of the season, including the AFC Champions League, which means that Yan Junling needs to take a truce for at least 3 months, or even longer.
