Ophthalmology, Optometry & Lasik Laser Malpractice

Ophthalmology Laser Malpractice

Your eyesight is precious. When it is wrongfully compromised, damaged, or lost, it is devastating to victims and their families. When you seek care for eye conditions, you deserve an ophthalmologist or optometrist who adheres to the accepted standards of care when diagnosis and treating patients. In contemporary practice, surgery on the eye has become more advanced and there is a wider array of options available to patients, including Lasik and other laser surgeries, cataract surgery, and many revolutionary procedures that have improved the lives of millions. With these advancements, however, also comes the risk of serious eye injuries and even blindness.

Eye Care Malpractice

Make no mistake about it—Eye doctors and other medical professionals make mistakes. Unfortunately, mistakes during delicate eye surgery can have devastating consequences, including, but not limited to:

  • Vision loss or blindness
  • Blurred or double vision
  • Eye infections
  • Detached retina
  • Halos
  • Dry eye syndrome

Medical professionals take an oath to practice in accordance with the established standards of care. When a caretaker deviates from this standard, he should be held liable for the damages he causes. Our reputation, experience, and skilled negotiation with insurance companies often lead to a favorable settlement for our clients. When you are not offered what you deserve, though, we are meticulously prepared to fight for you in court. We will even assemble a team of experts, including other eye doctors, nurses, etc. to testify on your behalf, if necessary.

Failing To Diagnose/Misdiagnosis Of Eye Conditions

A failure to diagnose or misdiagnosing a dangerous eye condition is a form of malpractice. An ophthalmologist's or optometrist's failure to correctly recognize a dangerous eye condition, including cancer, cataracts, conjunctivitis, and herpes, can cause you to miss out on vital treatment in a timely manner, perhaps saving your vision and in rare cases, your life. Your doctor may not ask about medication you are currently taking, which may also have an effect on your vision. All of this can lead to improper treatment, exacerbating your eye problems.
