What is Laser Eye Surgery? 

Laser eye surgery, or laser vision correction, is a corrective medical treatment performed to improve poor vision from conditions such as short-sightedness and astigmatism. The procedure involves the use of lasers to make subtle changes to the shape of the cornea with the laser working within seconds. 

There are three main types of laser eye surgery, including: LASIK, SMILE, and surface laser treatments. With these procedures, there are potential risks. All the risks and side effects of the procedure should have been explained to you prior to the treatment. If they were not and you have suffered as a result, you could be entitled to make a claim. Contact one of our specialist advisors to know for sure.

Types of Laser Eye Surgery Negligence Claims

We have experience representing many different types of laser eye surgery claims which often involve: 

  • Surgical errors that should or could have been avoided 
  • Incorrect information given about surgical risks 
  • Poor post-operative care

This is not an exhaustive list, so if you believe you may have received negligent care surrounding laser vision correction, it is important to seek advice from a specialist solicitor who can review your case and guide you through the claims process.

What are the Consequences of Failed Laser Eye Surgery? 

The consequences of negligent laser eye surgery can be life-changing and can include: 

  • Partial or total blindness
  • Visual disturbances
  • Unnecessary scarring
  • Floaters in vision

If your corrective eye surgery was conducted in a negligent manner or you sustained injuries due to the inadequate treatment from an ophthalmic surgeon, you could be entitled to compensation.

Am I Eligible to Make a Claim?

As it can be a risky procedure, we need to determine whether your situation is an accepted risk, or due to improper, negligent practice. Our medical negligence solicitors have the experience and expertise to be able to let you know very quickly whether you are able to pursue a case for the symptoms you are left with after the laser eye surgery. 

The best thing to do is give us a call – it costs nothing to get our advice and we can hopefully give you peace of mind either way.

Vincent's Story

"He's always there for us"

At the age of 2 we noticed our son Vincent had trouble with his hearing. We had this testing over a number of years and were repeatedly told there was nothing wrong.

Initially we thought this was a speech and language problem, this wasn't the case. It took 4 to 5 years of assessments, with the constant response that there was nothing wrong with his hearing. A different test was them carried on Vincent overnight where it was found he was profoundly deaf.

After years of frustration we were finally able to provide Vincent with the support he required and received an implant. This has enable Vincent to be able to hear. The support from our solicitors has enabled to to gain access to specialist which have supported Vincent in closing the gap in his speech he lost out on to his peers.
