Cataract Surgery Errors
When people suffer vision impairment due to cataracts, they may seek relief through cataract surgery. While most cataract surgeries do not result in serious complications, some patients who undergo cataract surgery suffer damage to their vision as a result of the procedure.
If you have suffered vision loss as a result of a cataract surgery, you may be able to obtain compensation through a medical malpractice claim. Examples of medical negligence that may occur in connection with a cataract surgery include:
- Improper screening of patients to determine if surgery is necessary
- Providing procedures that are not medically advisable
- Scratching of the cornea during a procedure, which may cause vision impairment
- Failure to refer a patient to corneal specialist if the cornea has been damaged
Failure to administer antibiotic eye drops
- Failure to diagnose and treat endophthalmitis (a type of eye infection)
