Eye and ophthalmic compensation claims

If you have problems with your eyesight because of problems or complications during your medical care, you might have a medical negligence compensation claim.

Katheryn Riggs, Bishop's Stortford

Problems with your eyesight can be life changing. Mistakes during ophthalmic treatment and eye surgery can lead to reduced vision, visual impairment and blindness. Medical errors during other medical procedures, such as treatment for a stroke, can also cause vision loss or reduced vision. 

If you’ve suffered because of mistakes during an NHS or private treatment, an ophthalmic negligence solicitor can help you make a compensation claim.

No win, no fee

We work on a no win, no fee basis, so there’s no need to worry about costs. Plus, our specialist solicitors provide an initial free assessment of your claim.

Examples of eye and ophthalmic medical negligence claims 

Opticians, GPs and Hospital doctors (including Ophthalmologists and Ophthalmic Surgeons) can make mistakes which cause damage and sight loss.  

Our medical negligence solicitors help clients who have problems with their sight due to:

  • complications following a stroke
  • delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis of acute angle glaucoma
  • delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis of raised intracranial pressure
  • delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis of giant cell arteritis (GCA)
  • delayed diagnosis and treatment of brain tumours resulting in damage to vision
  • delayed diagnosis and treatment of Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP)
  • delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis of detached retinas
  • surgical error during, for example, laser eye surgery and lens surgery; cataract removal/repair surgery; brain surgery

How a compensation claim can help

Problems with your vision can of course affect your everyday life. A compensation claim can provide assistive equipment, treatment, care and financial security. Here are some examples of things we can help you claim for:

  • compensation for loss of income if you are unable to return to work, or have missed work
  • transport assistance
  • care and support at home
  • house adaptation
  • walking aids; and
  • technology aids, for example adapted tablet computer.
