Ophthalmic Claims

When things don’t go right, we are here to get you the answers you deserve.

Ophthalmology relates to conditions involving the eyes. Treatment and / or surgery may be required to correct vision problems or treat conditions such as diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, glaucoma or macular degeneration.

Negligent treatment and / or surgery involving the eyes can have a significant impact on a person’s quality of life. This type of negligence can occur for various reasons and the consequences can be devastating. If you or someone you know has been a victim of ophthalmic negligence, our specialist medical (clinical) negligence team can help. 

Negligent Eye Surgery Compensation

Eye surgery may be necessary due to an injury or trauma to the eye. In other cases, it may be an elective procedure, chosen by the patient to improve their vision or enhance their appearance.

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with eye surgery. Mistakes during surgery can have devastating consequences and may result in permanent damage to the eyes. Some of the most common cases of ophthalmic negligence arise from:

  • failing to diagnose
  • failing to monitor a pre-existing eye condition
  • misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of an eye condition
  • laser eye surgery going wrong

Alternatively, you may be unhappy with treatment provided by your optician. Common issues include prescription errors and misdiagnosis of conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts or detached retinas.

These failures can lead to severe life-long complications including partial or complete blindness which is devastating for any patient.

Our team of specialist medical (clinical) negligence solicitors understand the complexities involved in handling such cases. We have extensive experience in dealing with ophthalmic claims and can provide you with clear and concise advice on how to proceed.
