Many of these procedures are successfully performed every day by ophthalmic surgeons and doctors in both NHS and private practices. The procedures are completed efficiently and quickly, and the patients are satisfied with the outcome.
However, in some cases, these procedures can go wrong. If you’ve undergone eye surgery and a mistake was made, you could experience unnecessary pain and suffering during your recovery.

Mistakes and negligence in eye surgery procedures can cause a range of harmful and life-changing consequences for patients. At best, the patient may experience additional pain or an unnecessarily long healing and rehabilitation period. At worst, patients may have to undergo a range of further corrective procedures or they could even lose their sight.
In some of the worst cases, a patient has gone in for a routine procedure and ended up losing their sight in one or both eyes due to a medical mistake.
Needless to say, this can be hugely distressing and traumatic for those affected. This is where compensation can provide a small comfort, as it can help to cover the cost of medical bills. The money can also be useful for paying for adjustments that may need to be made to the home if the patient has suffered loss of vision. Travel costs, medication and other expenses can all be covered by compensation, which can also help if you’ve experienced loss of earnings as a result of what happened.
Compensation can’t undo any pain and anxiety that has already been caused, but it can at least alleviate financial pressures and concerns.
