The emergence of Lasik eye surgery in 1987 gave consumers with eyesight problems the opportunity to undergo a surgical procedure that would allow them to put away corrective lenses for the rest of their lives. While millions of patients have successfully undergone laser eye surgery since then, it is all too common for errors to occur in this type of surgery, resulting in complications that frequently outweigh the potential benefits.
A competent and skilled doctor with the proper training can safely and swiftly utilize the laser technology on the market to effectively treat imperfections insight, but carelessness, mistakes, and outright negligence can easily result in serious problems. If you have been the victim of laser eye surgery malpractice, contact the Des Moines medical malpractice lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., at (515) 705-0233 today to learn how you can pursue compensation for your pain and suffering.
A number of different side effects can be experienced after undergoing an improperly executed laser eye surgery, many of them negating the supposed benefits of the surgery. Without expert care, you could be subjected to the following symptoms:
- Dry eyes
- Starbursts, halos, and other objects in your vision
- Loss of vision
Many of these conditions are treatable with further surgery, medication, or continued use of corrective lenses, but the fact of the matter is that they should never occur in the first place if the doctor uses the care and skill he or she has been paid for to carry out the procedure.
If you have experienced unexpected and unfortunate side effects after undergoing laser eye surgery, you may be entitled to compensation for your resulting medical expenses and other damages.
