Representation in cataract surgery malpractice lawsuits
Within the past decade, eye refractive surgery has become very popular for those who want to shed their glasses and contact lenses. In fact, there have been over 28 million procedures done since the FDA approved the surgery in 1999. It has high success rates; however there are risks inherent with this type of procedure.
Eye Refractive Surgery Mistakes
During this surgery, the cornea is reshaped to correct astigmatism, nearsightedness and farsightedness. For roughly 80 percent of patients who have this surgery there are no problems, but the other 20 percent can experience all sorts of issues.
While the complications are sometimes the result of practitioner error, they can also be caused by improperly calibrated machinery, equipment maintenance issues and mistakes made during the prescreening process.
The eyes are one of the most sensitive organs in the body. Vision is precious and without the ability to see, a life can be drastically altered. If you or a loved one has undergone this procedure and it wasn’t successful, you may be entitled to compensation. There is a strong history of lawsuits against LASIK and other eye refractive surgery practitioners, including for violations of the FTC’s regulations against making unsubstantiated and deceptive safety claims.
