LASIK eye surgery is becoming more and more common. While many procedures have been successful, there are still those that result in complications, many of them debilitating. Thankfully, victims have taken action. There have been many LASIK lawsuits that have been filed, with some patients winning hundreds of thousands of dollars against negligent doctors and clinics.
Different complications can occur during LASIK surgery, ranging from malfunction of equiptment to the surgeon failing to follow standard procedures. Common LASIK complications include:
- Surface tissue entering the cornea
- Loss of the corneal flap during or after the procedure
- Slip of the corneal flap causing improper healing
- Too deep or too shallow cuts in the flap
- Infection of the cornea
- Loss of visual acuity
