About Laser Eye Treatment

Laser eye treatment has become one of the most popular procedures available and, if successful, can change someone’s life entirely. The lure of not needing to wear glasses or contact lenses ever again has shown to be an attractive proposition with many people taking up the offer for laser eye surgery.

However, what happens when it goes wrong? Unfortunately with the rapid rise in this form of treatment, we have seen a rapid rise in negligent treatment as well.

The Risks

The eye is one of the most delicate and important sensory organs humans have. When something goes wrong in its treatment the results can be catastrophic.

Some common negligence cases we deal with include:

  • Corneal ectasia which can lead to a cornea transplant
  • Temporary and permanent blindness
  • Facial tenderness and pain
  • Blurred or tunnel vision
  • Dry eyes and tear duct pain
  • Black floaters following procedure

Making a claim

If you would like a medical negligence claim regarding your laser eye surgery there are a few things you will need to consider. Unfortunately it’s not as simple as saying something went wrong and you will need to show that a medical professional acted negligently and as a result, you suffered.

Often you will need to provide evidence and support for you claim, to help with this you should;

  • Report any concerns to the company who carried out the treatment
  • Visit a professional (GP, minor injuries unit, A&E) to have your injuries assessed
  • Make an account of what happened
  • Make sure you have a record of what you were told prior to the surgery, include all the facts
  • Keep note of all documents received about the treatment
