Cataract Surgery Errors
What to do if Your Cataract Surgery has Gone Wrong
When people suffer vision impairment due to cataracts, they may seek relief through cataract surgery. It’s a common way to retain and improve deteriorated eyesight, which is a huge relief for many people. While most cataract surgeries do not result in serious complications, some patients who undergo cataract surgery suffer damage to their vision as a result of the procedure, leaving them worse off than they started.
If you have suffered vision loss as a result of a cataract surgery, you may be able to obtain compensation through a medical malpractice claim. Examples of medical negligence that may occur in connection with a cataract surgery include:
- Improper screening of patients to determine if surgery is necessary
- Providing procedures that are not medically advisable
- Scratching of the cornea during a procedure, which may cause vision impairment
- Failure to refer a patient to corneal specialist if the cornea has been damaged
- Failure to administer antibiotic eye drops
- Failure to diagnose and treat endophthalmitis (a type of eye infection)
