The Dangers of Lasik Surgery

Lasik surgery errors can result in a number of medical problems, including:

  • Vision impairments such as halos, glare, and double vision
  • Extreme dry eye syndrome
  • Total loss of vision

Lasik surgery has only been around since the late 1990s, so data about its long-term effects are not available. If you or a loved one have suffered blindness, dry eye syndrome, or another complication as a result of a Lasik error, it is important to explore your legal options.

Our Ohio Lasik error lawyers have successfully handled numerous medical malpractice lawsuits and can help you seek just compensation for the losses you have suffered.

Lasik Surgery Errors Made by the Surgeon

Like any other type of surgery, mistakes can happen. Implanting the wrong lens, for example, could ruin the procedure. Failure to verify lens specifications beforehand is one reason this may occur. Patient mix-ups can result in using the wrong patient’s lens specifications. This may be the result of not identifying the patient and verifying that the right lenses are being used.

Mistakes can happen during the incision, too. The procedure requires cutting and peeling the outer layer of the cornea, then applying the laser. If this isn’t done correctly, it can cause irreparable damage to the patient’s vision.

Whether it’s transferring data, verifying patient records, or maintaining and repairing equipment, these types of mistakes can result in devastating consequences. Unfortunately, this could mean the patient’s vision is worse than before or make it impossible for them to wear contact lenses.

Patient Mistakes with Lasik Surgery

Patients may make errors, too. For instance, some may put the cost of the procedure over experience and skill when choosing a surgeon to perform the procedure or choose a surgeon who doesn’t bother to discuss the risks and potential complications and inquiring about them.

The decision to undergo this type of surgery is not one that should be made lightly and patients should also ensure that their information is verified, they discuss and understand risk factors, and they pick a surgeon who is experienced and well-qualified to perform the procedure.

Of course, despite taking necessary precautions, some patients have become victims of preventable mistakes. A Lasik malpractice lawyer at The Becker Law Firm can provide legal counsel to patients who believe a Lasik error was the result of surgeon negligence.

    "David worked our case with professionalism and patience in an amazing way that ultimately led to a positive outcome."
    Right from the very beginning of our case, David Skall and his assistant Jean Witt were both extremely kind and compassionate to help us put closure on a wrongful death case involving my father at a care facility. They were quick to answer any questions that we had and they made sure we were kept in the loop of this entire process. even though we were in the middle of a pandemic, David and his team were able to adapt their technology and make it all work out for our benefit. I would strongly recommend them to anyone in need of legal help.
