When it first came on the scene, LASIK surgery seemed like a miracle. Throw away your glasses and your contact lenses! Perfect vision is yours with just a few laser pin pricks. For many patients, LASIK kept its promise, but for others, the outcome was disastrous. Poor screening of patients and misapplication of the technology has led to serious injuries, including legal blindness for young, active individuals in the primes of their careers. At Neimark & Neimark, LLP, our medical malpractice attorneys fight for injured patients. We are determined to obtain full compensation for the harm to your vision, including medical bills, lost income, lost future income, and pain and suffering. LASIK vision injury cases are often difficult to prosecute, but we’re determined to achieve a result that truly compensates for your losses.

Many of these results require corneal grafts or cornea transplants to correct. However, a bad outcome is not enough to prove medical malpractice; you must show that an error caused your injury.
Clinics that do not screen out patients, who, for example, have thin corneas, are gambling with their patients’ eyesight.

Problems also occur during and after the procedure. Common problems include:

  • Improper laser settings (sometimes due to patient misidentification)
  • Negligent diagnosis and treatment of post-LASIK ectasia.
  • Infections and inflammations.
  • Flap issues
  • Epithelial defects
  • Epithelial ingrowths and central islands
  • Failure to obtain informed consent
The surgeon who performed the LASIK procedure is ultimately responsible for mistakes in screening, laser settings, etc., in addition to actual surgical errors. Even when clinics contract with numerous ophthalmic surgeons, and manage every step of the process up to the actual surgery, the surgeon is accountable.
