LASIK Surgery Error
Contact this Fort Lauderdale LASIK Surgery Error Lawyer if you’ve been injured by a LASIK procedure occurring anyplace in the State of Florida. LASIK stands for “laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis.” It is a procedure in which a flap is cut into the cornea (the outer-surface located at the front of the eye). Once the flap is cut, a laser is used to reshape the cornea.
The purpose of the procedure is to create better vision. LASIK is used to treat eye conditions such as astigmatism, hyperopia and myopia.
Nevertheless, while a LASIK procedure can be useful, it can also be extremely dangerous. For example, a LASIK procedure can cause blurry/poor vision, astigmatism, macular holes, pain and even blindness.

Most LASIK mistakes occur when the procedure shouldn’t have been performed at all. That is, certain people are not candidates for LASIK. For example, people with conditions such as keratoconus or pellucid marginal degeneration (conditions characterized by thin corneas). LASIK performed on a person with thinning corneas can lead to damaged corneas.
Such situations may require corrective procedures such corneal transplants (wherein a new cornea is placed in the eye).
People with large pupils also might not be candidates for LASIK procedures.
The problem arises from the fact that eye doctors today perform so many LASIK procedures, and the procedure can be quite profitable for those doctors. As a result, many doctors have the tendency to simply recommend LASIK procedures without properly vetting their patients.Assistance Provided by this South Florida LASIK Surgery Negligence Law Firm
Also, due to the number of patients operated on, many doctors will allow medical staff in their offices to perform the procedures. This can be dangerous for obvious reasons, and serious injuries can result.
LASIK surgery error may also occur when the eye surgeon didn’t properly calibrate the laser. This may result in “central islands” in the patient’s vision. Improper use of the equipment during the procedure may also result in injuries.
Poor post-operative care may also result in serious injuries after a LASIK procedure. That is, after a LASIK operation, it is important for a doctor to monitor the patient’s condition. Ophthalmologists (i.e., eye doctors) should follow up with the patient after the surgery. This is crucial because eye infections can frequently result after a LASIK procedure. If such an infection results, it may be easily treatable. However, if it isn’t so treated, then it can progress and lead to all sorts of vision disturbances including, in the worst case, loss of the eye and resulting blindness.Don’t Delay Calling this Broward County LASIK Surgery Malpractice Attorney
