Your vision is one of your most important senses.

When it is damaged, it is life changing and all aspects of your home and work life can be affected.

Eye surgery (or ‘ophthalmic surgery’) may be a procedure that you need to have, such as cataract repair or it may be something you have chosen to have such as laser eye surgery or eyelid lifting.

Either way, sometimes mistakes are made with devastating consequences. The most common eye surgery claims are for laser eye surgery (such as Lasik, Laskek, PRK and laser corneal re-shaping) which is used to correct long or short sightedness.

It can result in an improvement in vision but if performed incorrectly can lead to dryness of eyes, night vision problems and permanent eye damage.

Cataract surgery is performed to remove a cloudy natural lens which has formed in your eye and replace to it with an artificial one. It can be a successful procedure, leading to an improvement in your eye sight but, when a mistake is made, it can lead to deterioration or even the complete loss of sight. You may also have surgery for retinal detachment. When your retina detaches it needs to be treated very quickly, or it can lead to blindness. Mistakes are made when there is a failure to diagnose this condition, or the reattachment surgery is performed negligently, leading to long term problems.
