Eye Injury Compensation Claims


Having your eyesight impaired or even completely lost is life changing. Our eyesight is arguably one of the most important senses that we have. To know that this was taken away due to medical negligence can be extremely distressing and traumatic.

How Can Negligence Cause Sight Loss?

  • A delay in diagnosis, test results and prescribing medication
  • Misdiagnosis of an eye condition or even the severity of the condition
  • Mismanagement
  • Other conditions were not properly treated which led to sight loss
Negligence can be found not just at hospitals and at doctors’ surgeries, but also with opticians. Opticians or eye surgeons may be responsible for an eye injury if:
  • A full checklist of eye examination is not completed
  • There was misdiagnosis, or no diagnosis, of an eye condition
  • The incorrect strength of glasses or contact lenses in prescribed
  • Poor/incorrect equipment was used for eye surgery
  • There were poor conditions for eye surgery

Case Study: Medical Negligence Loss of Sight

D v Moorfields Eye Hospital

This claim relates to the insertion of an incorrect strength lens during cataract surgery which required additional surgery to remove the incorrect lens and replace this with a new one. This required the claimant to undergo a second operation which would otherwise have been avoided, fortunately a full recovery was made after a relatively short period of additional discomfort and blurred vision.

The claim was successfully concluded and damages were awarded in the sum of £7,500.00.
