What is eye-related medical negligence?
Eye-related medical negligence refers to a situation where a medical professional, such as a doctor or optometrist, fails to provide an appropriate standard of care when diagnosing, treating or performing surgery on a patient’s eyes. This can result in harm or injury to the patient’s eyes, vision or overall health.
Examples of eye-related medical negligence may include:
- misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of eye conditions,
- errors during eye surgery,
- failure to detect or treat eye diseases and
- incorrect administration of medication or treatment for eye-related conditions.

Why choose Augustus Cullen Law’s eye-related negligence Solicitors?
We recently acted for the plaintiff in a case against an ophthalmic surgeon who had mistakenly entered the wrong patient’s data in a laser machine at the time of the plaintiff’s laser eye surgery. The ophthalmic surgeon had entered the details of a patient with the same name but with a different address and date of birth. Following the surgery the plaintiff was rendered close to the technical definition of blindness for almost 6 months. Augustus Cullen Law successfully brought proceedings on behalf of the plaintiff and negotiated a high value settlement for him.
