Laser Eye Surgery

Negligence

Laser eye surgery is normally a costly, elective procedure that a person thinks long and hard about, before making the decision to proceed. On the rare occasions where a patient suffers avoidable damage as a result of negligence, the consequences can be devastating. This is where we come in. Our experts understand the distress caused and we will help you take the steps to make things right. Our help starts from the first complaint all the way to trial if it is needed.

Complications can arise from

  • A failure to carry out the required safety checks
    Before surgery, checks must be carried out to ensure the operating theatre is safe to use.
  • The use of outdated equipment
    The use of old equipment or outdated techniques can cause significant risk of errors and complications arising. It is reasonable to expect the treatment you receive should be of a competent standard.
  • Cosmetic damage/ scarring
    Negligent treatment causing scarring and cosmetic damage.
  • NHS negligence
    When this type of procedure is carried out by a NHS hospitals or clinic, you expect to receive treatment to a reasonable standard of care. This is often not the case and mistakes are unfortunately made.
