Eye Surgery Errors

Eye Surgery Malpractice Attorney Serving Raleigh, North Carolina

Corrective eye surgery has become the most common elective procedure in medicine over the last decade. Most of the time, the results are excellent and the patient has no complications. But, when the surgeon does make a mistake, the results can be devastating for the patient.

At The Melvin Law Firm in Greenville, we represent clients who were injured while undergoing eye surgery to correct their vision (LASIK), to repair cataracts or to repair an existing eye injury. We have more than 20 years of experience in North Carolina medical malpractice cases, including a number of cases involving botched eye surgeries. We will pursue all available compensation and do our best to hold responsible the person who caused your injury.

To speak with an experienced Raleigh eye surgery malpractice lawyer at The Melvin Law Firm, please call 800-391-8191 or contact us online. We handle malpractice cases throughout North Carolina.

Laser Eye Surgery Is Not Foolproof

LASIK surgery is advertised by doctors in Raleigh, Charlotte and throughout the state as “quick and painless,” often using radio advertising that makes it sound as though there are no risks. But the human eye is a delicate structure, and LASIK surgery is just that: surgery. Mistakes happen in eye surgery just as with any other procedure, and when they do, patients can lose a large percentage of their vision or become blind entirely.

Our North Carolina firm is a resource for those injured during refractive surgery, cataract procedures and all other types of ocular surgery. We understand what it takes to move these cases forward, and we will be honest with you about your chances of success.
