The modern development of laser eye surgery has helped people across the country. It is quite a simple procedure that can improve the quality of life for short- or long-sighted people, but if something goes wrong then the consequences can be dire. In such a case the victim may need to make a personal injury claim, and may want to use professional injury lawyers in Smallburgh to do so.
Just some of the problems victims may experience are:
- Dryness of the eyes;
- Night vision difficulties;
- Corneal scarring;
- Corneal infection;
- Corneal haze, which is long-term mistiness of vision;
- Eyelid drooping;
- Over- or under-correction making your vision worse; and
- In very rare cases, blindness.
If any of these complications happened to you while having your laser eye surgery, it may be possible you want to make a personal injury claim.
Over 100,000 people a year undergo laser eye surgery in the UK. The majority of these patients will have no problems at all and will be very pleased to no longer have to wear glasses or contact lenses. For the few unfortunate ones who do have a problem, though, they may be able to use injury lawyers in Smallburgh to make a personal injury claim.
