Nashville Lasik Malpractice Attorneys
Did You Suffer Injuries During Lasik Eye Surgery?
Ads for Lasik surgery are almost everywhere in our society. Open a newspaper or go online and you'll soon see an ad promising a quick, cheap surgical procedure that will allow you to throw your glasses or contacts away and enjoy perfect vision.
Sadly, surgery providers can often cut too many corners—and when they do, the result can be vision damage that cannot be corrected, even if you go back to contacts or glasses. If this has happened to you, it's time to find out what your legal options are for pursuing full and fair compensation.

What Happens When Corners Are Cut
Many injuries from Lasik surgery can be traced to failure to screen candidates properly before the surgery. Screening for a condition called keratoconus is crucial because if that condition is present, there may already be a degenerative thinning of the retina that makes vision correction surgery unsafe.
Unfortunately, too many Lasik surgery operations do not provide adequate training for their surgeons and other staff in detecting keratoconus.
The injuries that can result from this failure include:
- Burning of the eye, particularly the cornea
- Double vision
- Seeing star bursts, halos
- Poor night vision
- Pain in the eye
These are problems that cannot be fixed by just putting glasses or contacts back on. In fact, when the cornea has been damaged severely, the injury can even be disabling.
Ensuring You Get Maximum Compensation
Our law firm has a proven track record of quantifying the injuries and pursuing the compensation clients need after a medical or surgical mistake. This includes compensation for loss of earning capacity and loss of enjoyment of life, among other damages.
