Ophthalmology Misdiagnosis & Delay in Treatment

There can be a range of errors that can occur within the branch of ophthalmology and some examples include, a failure in recognising early signs of an eye condition or a delay in diagnosing and providing treatment. An early diagnosis of an ophthalmologic condition can allow the patient to be provided with appropriate treatment ensuring that they have the best possible prognosis. 

Types of Ophthalmology Misdiagnosis & Delay in Treatment Errors 

Due to the delicate nature of ophthalmologic related conditions, it is important that medical professionals take due care and diligence in diagnosing and treating a patient or loved ones. However, errors may arise in the following circumstances: 

  • A delay in diagnosing and treating glaucoma
  • Inappropriate cataract surgery techniques
  • Failing to perform surgery for a retinal detachment in a timely manner 
  • A delay in diagnosing a retinal detachment
  • Loss of sight due to a failure to correctly treat diabetes
  • Medication and prescription errors leading to damage to the eye
  • And other ophthalmology errors

If you or a loved one has been affected by negligence arising from ophthalmology errors which has prolonged or exacerbated a medical condition, or has resulted in the death of a loved one, Mistreatment.com may be able to assist.
