Ophthalmology Errors

Scranton, Pennsylvania Ophthalmology Attorneys

With the increase in so many different innovative eye operations such as LASIK surgery and glaucoma surgical advances, the ophthalmology field is becoming increasingly familiar to Americans. Unfortunately, the number of eye surgeries resulting in medical malpractice litigation has also risen. Despite the fact eye operations are elective, many still carry substantial risk. While advertisements portray these surgeries as minor, these operations can result in permanent injuries, including blindness.

While any medical procedure comes with its own risks and complications, many eye injuries directly result from ophthalmologist negligence. If your or your loved one has suffered physical injury as a result of an eye operation, call Caputo & Mariotti’s attorneys at (570) 342-9999, or use our online contact form to contact us now for a FREE Consultation.

LASIK (also known as refractive eye surgery) has become increasingly popular along with other eye surgeries such as cataract surgery. Unfortunately, any eye surgery in high demand creates an added risk for medical negligence. An ophthalmologist may fail to determine whether a patient is even a good candidate for a certain eye surgery. Mistakes can happen during the procedure or post-operative eye complications may occur. Possible eye injuries may include:

  • Hemorrhaging
  • Glaucoma correction injuries
  • Dry eye
  • Cataract and lens replacement error
  • Blindness
  • Blurry vision
  • Loss of contrast sensitivity
  • Double vision
  • Retinal damage
  • Corneal abrasion
  • Myopia
  • Corneal haze
  • Infection
  • Corneal staining
  • Eye flap-related injuries
