LASIK and Refractive Eye Surgery

Since 2000, Greg Zeuthen has been a LASIK eye surgery attorney for many people who have suffered tragic and permanent injuries resulting from eye surgery.

LASIK and Refractive Eye Surgery
Individuals are attracted to LASIK and refractive eye surgery to eliminate or diminish their dependence on glasses or contacts. Unfortunately, many of those who opt for LASIK surgery are not properly screened and should not have had the surgery. It is vital to contact a LASIK eye surgery attorney right away if you have had any problems after LASIK or refractive eye surgery.

Equipment failures, surgeon error, and lack of proper procedure or standards can all contribute to temporary or even permanent vision problems. When problems occur after surgery, a claim might exist based on improper or untimely post-operative care by the surgeon.

Ill-Advised Surgery
Many surgeons now advertise their newer technology and equipment. Unfortunately for the consumer, sometimes this advertising rarely mentions the serious potential side-effects of the procedure. Most doctors like to wait until the prospective patient has entered the office before laying out the common problems associated with LASIK surgery. On occasion, the informed consent document is introduced in passing, sometimes shortly before surgery. In such cases, an incomplete or inaccurately informed consent discussion can lead to a hasty decision by the patient to undergo an ill-advised surgery.

It is not enough that a doctor explain general risks to a patient. Frequently, patients agree to accept the risks applicable to the general population. Informed consent requires more. Surgeons should also explain the particularized risks to the individual patient that may impact the patient’s candidacy or likely result.

WHY GREG ZEUTHEN

Greg Zeuthen is a LASIK eye surgery attorney that was one of the first to successfully prosecute cases on behalf of victims of eye surgery. He represents patients who generally should have never been approved for the popular surgery. The case preparation involves documenting scientific evidence showing mistakes and miscalculations made by operating surgeons. Greg isn’t able to restore his clients’ vision, but he is able to help them restore their lives by holding accountable the doctors who injured them. His name often comes up on the website Vision Surgery Rehab Network where recovering LASIK patients refer dependable attorneys to each other.

Cataract and Refractive Surgery invited Greg Zeuthen to address its members at three different conferences. After each presentation, Greg fielded questions from the doctors. The presentations were well received and sparked lively discussions regarding the necessity of keeping patients fully informed of complications that may develop following LASIK, PRK, or CK surgery.

What I appreciated most about Greg was his genuine concern. He did a great job of staying in communication with me. He was never too busy to meet with me and take my calls. That in itself meant a lot.

We were impressed with Greg throughout. He didn' t wait for things to happen. He went out and put in the time necessary. He kept us informed. When surprises came up, he simply made adjustments and let us know what was going on. Greg demonstrated compassion and competence in dealing with us and in every aspect of preparing the case.
