But what if a mistake is made and your eyesight problems get worse, or you lose your sight? Then you might consider making accident claims in Northamptonshire against the optician who made the mistake.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, our injury lawyers can help you to make accident claims in Northamptonshire, for your eye injuries, if the optician that carried out your laser eye surgery made a mistake.
The problems of laser eye surgery and why you might want to make accident claims in Northamptonshire
The human eye is very delicate so you should be careful at all times what you do to them. The amazing medical treatment has meant that you can have a simple procedure to correct the vision in your eyes, with laser eye surgery. This can greatly improve some people’s lives and is wonderful for people who are short or long sighted.
But if a mistake is made then the consequences can be dire, although many of the mistakes with laser eye surgery can be corrected by a repeat operation, but why should you have to go through it twice?
Here are some examples of problems you may experience in this situation:
- Corneal scarring
- Corneal infection
- Corneal haze which is long term mistiness of vision
- Eye lid drooping
- Over or under correction making your vision worse
- In very rare cases, blindness
- Dryness of the eyes
- Night vision difficulties
If any of these complications happen to you, it may be possible to use an injury lawyer to claim compensation from the eye doctors that carried out the procedure.
