If your laser eye surgery goes wrong, what the effects are that could cause you to want to use an injury claims lawyer in Jarrow
Over 100,000 people a year have laser eye surgery in the UK and the majority of those will be very pleased with the outcome. However, the eye is a very delicate organ and needs treating with great care. The advances in medical technology means this is quite a simple procedure and can improve the quality of life for short or long sighted people, but if something goes wrong, the consequences can be dire and the victim may need to use an injury lawyer. Just some of the problems you may experience in this situation are:
- Dryness in the eyes
- Eye lid drooping
- Night vision difficulties
- Corneal scarring
- Corneal infection
- Corneal haze which is long term mistiness of vision
- Over or under correction making your vision worse
- In very rare cases, blindness
If any of these complications happened to you, it may be possible to use an injury lawyer to make a clinical negligence claim on your behalf.
It can sometimes be put right
Further procedures can sometimes correct the problems that have happened, but not always. It can be a very traumatic experience to have your sight affected, worry about losing it altogether or maybe looking through a scar on your eye forever more.
