Opthalmology Claims

Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that deals with the anatomy, physiology and diseases of the eye. An ophthalmologist is a specialist in medical and surgical eye problems. Since ophthalmologists perform operations on eyes, they are considered to be both surgical and medical specialists.

While ophthalmology negligence claims are infrequent in England, with less than 5% of patients experiencing unforeseen infections and eye injuries they are not unheard of. When a case of medical negligence does occur, the consequences for the patient can be severe, at worst the patient can be left with a loss of vision.

Common ophthalmology negligence claims include:

  • Laser eye treatment for correction of long or short sightedness
  • Cataract surgery; particularly concerning the pre-op consenting and counselling process
  • Management of metallic FB (foreign body) in eye
  • Delay in diagnosis and treatment of Glaucoma
  • Trauma to eyes and subsequent management
  • Corneal abrasions
  • Traumatic retinal detachment
  • Diabetic retinopathy
