Dave Rochelle, of Quakertown, says he had just finished a round of golf with his son and was driving home on July 21 when he was shot in the eye.
Rochelle says a car passed him going the opposite direction on Trumbauersville Road and all of the sudden he felt an intense pain below his left eye and everything went black.
"Our windows were parallel and right as he passed, right there, is when I felt what I thought was a golf ball," said Rochelle.
When he arrived at the hospital, Rochelle says he found out he'd been hit by a BB pellet.
"It hit right under the eye, which I'm guessing is a blessing right there, but what happened was after it entered it actually traveled upward and now it's lodged in the optic nerve," said Rochelle.
He is now partially blind. Rochelle tells NBC10 he opted not to have the BB pellet removed from his eye because doctors told him the surgery is too risky.
State Police are investigating and say they have no active leads.
