Laser eye Surgery can cost thousands of pounds yet is increasingly popular with the introduction of payment plans and special offers.

This procedure includes cutting a flap in the front of the eye so that the laser can reshape the cornea.  A full consultation should be given with all of the information including risks and possible side effects should be provided before agreeing to this invasive procedure.

The Risks

  • Loss of Vision
  • Night Vision Problems
  • Dry Eyes
  • Floaters – black lines and dots in the line of vision
  • Corneal Ectasia, where fluid pressure builds up on the eye
  • Laser damage to eyelids
  • In growing eye lashes
  • Double vision
  • Foggy vision
  • Growths
  • Chronic Eyelid Inflammation

Some of these occur due to the cornea being put back in place with wrinkles in it, or the cornea being lasered incorrectly, a mistake when cutting the cornea etc.

If you have suffered from any of the above issues or if you are suffering any other problems after having Laser Eye Surgery, contact our specialist team and they will be able to talk to you about your issues and discuss if you have a claim for compensation.

As well as claiming for any pain, suffering and inconvenience, you may be able to claim back additional costs such as:

Remedial Procedures – if you have to have your procedure corrected, the additional cost involved could form part of the claim against the practitioner or company that carried out the original procedure.

Additional Expenses not previously incurred – such as daily eye drops or additional household features to help with loss of sight, can all be included as part of your claim.

Loss of income – if you need to take additional days off work or you are unable to go back to work due to the negligence of the practitioner or company carrying out the procedure, your loss of income will form part of your claim.
