- You are an unsuitable patient for the surgery, but it has been carried out anyway.
- The practitioner was not qualified to carry out the surgery
- The practitioner failed to tell you about the risks and alternatives to the surgery
- The aftercare fell below an acceptable standard
- The professional has fitted a faulty or defective lens
- The surgeon was negligent during surgery
- You have been fitted with the wrong type of lens
- The surgeon has failed to consider the pre-surgery eye prescription
