Compensation for Laser Eye Surgery that Went Wrong

Compensation for Laser Eye Surgery that Went Wrong

A leading high street optician is considering an appeal after paying out more than £500,000 in damages to a woman who claimed her laser eye surgery had left her with permanent disability.

The claimant spent £2,900 on the operation in 2008, in the hope that it would improve her eyesight enough to enable her to join the police force. However, the procedure wasn't a success and left her unusually sensitive to light. She was left having to wear sunglasses and use candles at home because her eyes had become extremely sensitive to light.

It emerged in court that the company had put her under surveillance in an attempt to prove her claims were false.

The claimant said she had not been told of the risks of surgery and could no longer work as a book dealer as a result of the damage to her eyes.
