Eyes injuries can be caused by a variety of things. These injuries can be catastrophic and might result in permanent loss of vision or loss of the eye. Eye injuries often take place in the workplace, at home, in auto accidents, as a result of a defective product or medical malpractice. An eye injury can result in harm to many structures located in the eye. Because the cornea sits at the front of the eye, damage to the cornea can be caused by an outside entering into the eye.
The cornea works as the eye's outermost lens. It functions like a windowpane that controls and focuses the entry of light into the eye. So, your vision could become distorted or blurred if the cornea has been affected. If your injury is serious, then you could require a surgery. This could include a corneal transplant or a similar procedure. A loss of sight might even impact a person's ability to stay in their existing profession, leading to severe financial challenges.

You might sustain an eye injury if a doctor makes a mistake in your medical treatment. If you sustain an eye injury because of medical malpractice or medical negligence/carelessness, you might be able to pursue a case. The type of doctor that typically treats you for eye conditions is called an ophthalmologist. When ophthalmologists commit malpractice, often it is by failing to discover certain eye conditions. Mr. Quackenbush represents the victims of failures to diagnose eye conditions.
For instance, a detached retina is one of the leading causes of blindness. At the back of the eye is located the retina. The retina is the part of the eye that senses light and, through the macula, sends signals up your optic nerve to your brain and permits you to distinguish and perceive everything around you.
A retinal detachment is a disorder of the eye wherein the retina separates from the layer of tissue underneath. There are several symptoms that result from a detached retina – these include an increase in the number of flashes/flickering of light, floaters, and deterioration of the outer part of the visual field. If a patient with these symptoms sees an ophthalmologist and the doctor doesn’t make a diagnosis of the patient as having a retinal detachment, then the doctor might be legally liable if the patient ends up with a retinal detachment and this affects vision - especially if the blindness could have been prevented had the doctor diagnosed the retinal detachment and given proper treatment. Mr. Quackenbush will be able to provide you an assessment of the doctor’s responsibility.
A patient’s prognosis is much worse after an actual retinal detachment. The retina could still be re-attached, but the patient might not ever regain perfect sight. This is mainly the case if the detachment involves the macula (which is the central part of the retina).
A retinal detachment can take place in one eye or in both eyes. As such, retinal detachments can cause total loss of sight. This can be a catastrophic condition and could potentially cause the victim to not be able to work or lead a regular life. The consequences are overwhelming and disturbing, and Mr. Quackenbush works hard to gain compensation for the victim.This Miami-Dade Eye Injury Attorney/Lawyer Sympathizes With Vision Loss
Macular Degeneration is an eye condition that also unfortunately happens quite often. It is caused by the weakening of the central portion of the retina, the inside back layer of the eye that senses the light that we see and sends them to the brain from the eye via the optic nerve. The macula (the retina’s central portion) is responsible for focusing central vision in the eye, and it controls our ability to read, recognize faces or colors, drive a car and see objects.
Macular degeneration can cause progressive, gradual vision loss which leads to optic nerve damage. Glaucoma is a condition which can cause total blindness. One of the tests for glaucoma is the pressure in somebody’s eye. You might have a medical malpractice case against the ophthalmologist if your eye doctor fails to observe unusual eye pressure or other symptoms of an eye problem and a catastrophic eye injury is the result.Get Compensation Alongside a South Florida Eye Injury Law Firm
