The eye is both an important and complex organ where the importance of correct diagnosis and treatment cannot be understated. If there is a failure in the treatment of the eye it can be very disabling and mistakes do occur from time to time.
Sometimes the mistake is simply a failure to diagnose and treat common eye problems such a glaucoma and cataracts.
Laser eye treatment is a relatively new and sophisticated method of dealing with long or short-sightedness. Problems can occur if the treatment is substandard.

Common Eye-Related Claims
A claim for Medical Negligence Compensation may arise from: –
- Injury caused by laser eye treatment
- Failure to diagnose and treat eye-related illnesses (for example glaucoma/cataract)
- Failure to screen or test properly – this is particularly necessary in children where often the sooner a problem is detected the better in terms of effectiveness of treatment (for example stigmatism, lazy eye).
- Trauma (damage to the eye/foreign body in the eye/ detached retina)
