Ophthalmology & Eye Surgery Negligence Solicitors

If you have had medical procedures carried out on your eye and feel you have grounds for a surgery negligence compensation claim, our highly experienced team clinical negligence specialists can help you through the process - from start to finish.

What is Ophthalmology?

Medical procedures involving the anatomy, function and diseases of the eye come under the term ophthalmology. If, following treatment, you suffer an eye injury or infection which was due to medical negligence, then you may be able to make a claim for compensation.

Making a Compensation Claim

Medical negligence claims relating to ophthalmology are quite rare, with fewer than 5% of patients suffering from unforeseen eye injuries or infections. But when mistakes do happen, the effects can be severe.

Clinical negligence specialists here at Lanyon Bowdler have experience in a wide range of ophthalmology negligence claims, including:

  • Cataract surgery, particularly concerning the pre-op consenting and counselling process
  • Laser eye treatment for correction of long or short sightedness
  • Management of metallic foreign bodies in eye
  • Trauma to eyes and subsequent management
  • Delay in diagnosis and treatment of Glaucoma
  • Corneal abrasions
  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Traumatic retinal detachment

Whatever your eye injury or infection may involve, if you suspect clinical negligence on the part of a surgeon, nurse or GP, it’s vital to contact a clinical negligence specialist as soon as possible to discuss a potential claim for compensation.
