Canalicular trauma is the medical term for damage to the eye, usually affecting the drainage system. It refers to the canaliculi, which are the mucosal ducts through which tears come out of the eye. This part of the eye structure is not the same as the other parts of the eyelid, because there is no substructure, making this area very fragile and prone to serious injury.
If you’ve been hurt in this manner, and the accident was not your fault, you could be entitled to claim compensation for right canalicular laceration repair. Whether your injury occurred in a car accident, when you were at work or somewhere else, if you think someone else was to blame, we’re here to help. Seeking compensation for right canalicular laceration repair can be easy; here’s what you need to know:
What can cause a canalicular laceration?
There are many occasions when a canalicular laceration can happen. Any accident which causes damage to the eye brings with it a risk of this type of injury. For example:
- Being involved in a road traffic accident, and having glass from the windscreen lodged in the eye
- Tripping on a loose paving slab and falling face first into a thorny bush
- Being bitten in the face by a dog or other animal
- Not wearing appropriate eye protection at work, and having materials fly into your face
What is the outlook for canalicular laceration?
In most cases, the canalicular laceration will not repair on its own. As such, a specialist and highly technical repair operation is often required. Injury victims who undergo these operations have a good chance of success, with over 80 per cent completely healed within a year following the operation.
The downside of this requirement is that waiting lists for specialist operations can be long. Although some treatment can be performed as an emergency, canalicular laceration repair sometimes means waiting for a slot with an expert consultant, and that can be a long, painful and inconvenient wait. Seeking compensation for right canalicular laceration repair can give you the option to seek private treatment instead, so if the accident was not your fault, get in touch and we’ll be happy to help.
