Laser Eye Surgery Gone Wrong
According to the Royal College of Ophthalmologists, 120,000 people undergo laser eye surgery to correct long and shortsightedness. But like any operation, there are risks and sometimes can and do go wrong with disastrous consequences to a person’s sight.
Unlike most professional medial specalists, laser eye surgery can be carried out by anyone who has a basic doctor’s qualification and with a few hours or a couple of days training can learn to operate the equipment to carry out the delicate operation.
If carried out incorrectly, laser eye surgery can leave someone with blurred vision, in extreme discomfort or worse, permanently blind. If you feel that your optician or surgeon acted negligently or ‘botched’ your laser eye surgery, then you maybe able to make a claim for clinical negligence.
