Injury Solicitors in Drewsteignton
Drewsteignton is a village within West Devon. The village was mentioned in the Domesday Book as “Taintone”, meaning a village beside the Teign. By the 13th century it was known as “Teyngton Drue”, part of the name coming from a local landowner Drogo, also known as Drewe de Teignton. In later years a myth developed, encouraged by the presence of the archaeological remains, that the “Drew” part of the name derived from the presence of druids, but there is no evidence to support this.
Many residents of West Devon have had the very simple procedure of laser eye surgery to stop them having to wear glasses or contact lenses and the majority is very pleased with the results. In a small minority of cases nationwide though, something goes wrong and if this happens in your case you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim using injury solicitors Drewsteignton.
Why you might want to use injury solicitors in Drewsteignton if your laser eye surgery goes wrong
With over 100,000 people a year having laser eye surgery in the UK it should be no surprise that sometimes mistakes happen. Further procedures can correct some of the mistakes that are made, but not in all cases. If you have any complications after the laser eye surgery, you should speak to injury solicitors Drewsteignton about making a personal injury claim. Some of the problems you might experience 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
Even if you are one of the lucky ones that the error can be corrected for, why should you have to go through the discomfort more than once because someone got it wrong first time round?
