Vision Loss Caused by Medical Negligence
Many cases of accidental blindness or vision loss involve surgical errors. For example, although LASIK eye correction surgery has come a long way since it was first introduced, if it is not performed properly, the patient may lose their vision. Not everyone is a good candidate for LASIK, but there are some unscrupulous doctors who will perform the procedure anyway. Vision loss may also occur in the event that a doctor accidentally damages the optic nerve during brain surgery or plastic surgery on the face. These errors can cause potentially long-term effects, including pain, stinging, or burning in the eyes, loss of depth perception, double vision, infection, blurred vision, seeing spots, night blindness, uncomfortable dry eyes, or total vision loss.
