Optician Negligence Claims

If your optician has failed to provide you with the level of care and treatment that you would have expected from them, you may be entitled to make a medical negligence claim. For the most part, opticians and medical practitioners provide a stellar service without any major hiccups or problems. However, there is a small chance that something might go wrong, and it’s good to know that you can make a no win no fee claim in these cases to help cover the cost of any additional treatment and any loss of earnings you may have suffered from.

What You Can Claim For

You may experience an act of optician negligence under the following scenarios:

  • Failure to diagnose an eye problem.
  • Problems with laser eye surgery.
  • Misdiagnosis of any eye problems.
  • Failure or delay in referring you to further treatment.

If your optician has made an error which led to any physical or mental injury to yourself, feel free to give us a call on 0161 763 8260 and one of our expert advisors will get your claim up and running within minutes.

Eye Injury Symptoms

If you have suffered an eye injury, you may notice that the affected eye becomes red. This is usually because a blood vessel has burst on the surface of the eye - they will usually heal rather quickly. A fracture can also occur, known as an orbital fracture. These fractures can be identified by swelling, bruising and double vision symptoms.

If something has become stuck in your eye (also known as a foreign body), you are likely to experience a number of symptoms. These include pain, light sensitivity, blurred vision and tears. You may also experience a similar feeling if the outside (cornea) of your eye has been scratched.

Laser Eye Surgery Compensation

A lot of people are turning to laser eye surgery these days. Laser eye surgery is intended to improve the patients quality of life, although quite costly, the convenience of not having to wear glasses or contact lenses for a number of years is definitely worth it. Laser eye surgery is almost always a safe and positive experience, but there is a small chance, like every operation, that it may go wrong.

If you have been a victim of negligence or injury during laser eye surgery and would like to enquire about making a claim for compensation, you can either call 0161 763 8260, e-mail or fill in our contact form and we will get back to you as soon as possible. We have the facilities to assign a specialist solicitor and if you require corrective laser eye surgery or other treatment due to negligence, we will be able to take care of this on your behalf.
