If you have had laser eye surgery with Accuvision and your eyesight has gotten worse, or you have suffered injury as a result of the procedure, Friends Legal can help.
Accuvision offer what was previously a highly specialist medical procedure as a consumer service, at a reasonably low cost. However, this has meant that the number of claims for medical negligence brought against Accuvision for procedures that have gone wrong is on the rise.
At Friends Legal, we have a specialist eye injury team who deal with these cases day in day out across the UK, where people have experienced an injury as a result of laser eye surgery. Our team is led by Val Roberts, who herself has had defective laser eye surgery and can help you claim the compensation you are entitled to.
To discuss the circumstances leading to your eye injury with a specialist claims lawyer, call us now on 0141 442 0610. Alternatively, you can complete our online enquiry form, and we will get back to you without delay. We're here to help.
Making a Laser Eye Surgery Claim Against Accuvision
The Friends Legal team regularly help clients bring claims following laser eye surgery and have particular experience in assisting people where surgery has been carried out by a high-street business such as Accuvision. Complications following laser eye surgery can vary greatly but are often caused by the negligence of the practitioner carrying out the procedure. We routinely help clients that are suffering from the following complications:
- Eyelids drooping
- Full or partial vision loss
- Discomfort caused by the lens rubbing on the cornea
- Excessive eye dryness
- Sensitivity to light
- Poor vision at night
- Double vision that does not go away
- Retinal detachment
Lack of Informed Consent from Accuvision
Even when your practitioner has done everything correctly during the procedure, things can still go wrong. If Accuvision did not inform you about the inherent risks and alternatives to laser eye surgery, and you suffer an injury, you may still be able to bring a claim. This is known as 'lack of informed consent'.
Lens Replacement Surgery Claims Against Accuvision
We also help clients bring claims following lens replacement surgery. Complications arising out of lens replacement surgery may include the fitting of a faulty or damaged lens causing you injury. We can often work with clients you on a no-win, no fee basis, so contact us today to discuss your options with a member of our team.
