Laser Eye Surgery
If you have undergone laser eye surgery that’s left you in pain, needing corrective work or with the loss of sight in one or both eyes, then speak to our clinical negligence team about your right to claim compensation.

The Royal College of Ophthalmologists estimates that as many as 120,000 people undergo laser eye surgery at some point in their lives to correct long and short-sightedness. In the majority of cases, laser eye surgery procedures are very successful and have the potential to totally transform people’s lives. Sadly, however, as with any operation there are risks and things can and do go wrong.
Unlike other medical procedures, laser eye surgery can be administered by any person with a basic doctor’s qualification. They need only a few hours training to be eligible and in this training learn to operate the equipment needed to carry out the operation. However, if administered incorrectly, laser eye surgery can leave people suffering very serious issues with their sight, as it is such as delicate operation. Sufferers could find themselves with blurred vision, left in extreme discomfort after the operation or worse, permanently blind.
If you or your loved one believe that your optician or surgeon has acted negligently or ‘botched’ your laser eye surgery, leaving you suffering as a result, you may be entitled to make a claim for clinical negligence compensation. To discuss your individual case, please contact us today by calling 0800 122 3130 or start a claim online.
