Understanding laser eye surgery
Laser eye surgery is a life-changing procedure that has helped thousands of individuals improve their vision. However, it is important to recognise that there are risks associated with this type of surgery. Laser eye surgery is typically performed by an ophthalmologist, with the assistance of other medical professionals. The procedure involves using lasers to reshape the cornea, thereby correcting issues such as short and long-sightedness.
There are several types of laser eye surgery, including:
- LASIK: This corrective surgery involves creating a flap on the corneal surface and removing a thin layer of underlying tissue using a laser.
- SMILE: Small Incision Lenticule Extraction is a minimally invasive procedure that can correct higher degrees of short-sightedness, even for individuals with astigmatism.
- Surface Laser Treatments: These treatments, such as PRK, LASEK, and TransPRK, involve the removal of the clear skin layer of the cornea before laser reshaping takes place.
When does negligence occur?
While the majority of laser eye surgeries are successful, complications can arise due to negligence. Some examples of negligent acts during or after the procedure include:
- Failure to provide adequate information about the risks involved in the surgery.
- Insufficient aftercare following the surgery.
- Mistakes were made during the procedure itself.
- Vision problems after the surgery.
- Scarring on the cornea.
- Damage to tear ducts.
- Partial or complete blindness.
If you have experienced any of these complications or believe that the negligence of a medical professional has caused you harm, you may be eligible to make a compensation claim.
Making a compensation claim
To make a successful compensation claim, you must be able to demonstrate that the medical professional(s) involved in your care fell below the expected standard of care. You must also establish a direct link between their actions or lack thereof and the injuries you have sustained.
It is the duty of all medical professionals to ensure that patients are fully informed about the risks associated with any surgical procedure. If you were not properly advised of the potential risks and subsequently suffered an injury, you may have grounds for a claim.
At Calio Claims, our specialist team of solicitors will guide you through the process of making a compensation claim. We will work diligently to recover compensation for:
- Pain and suffering.
- Treatment costs.
- Loss of earnings.
- Care provided.
- Out-of-pocket expenses.
