Severe thermal burn to the cornea during eye surgery

+ Medical Negligence
+ David Jones
David Jones

In 2004 Mrs J developed a dropping of the eye lids and blepharospasm (an involuntary contraction of one of the muscles that controls the eye lids, causing them to close). In December 2005 Mrs J was diagnosed with bilateral ptosis (droopy eyelid), blepharitis (where the rims of the eyelids become inflamed), lower lid laxity and blepharospasm. Mrs J underwent surgery on the 6th April 2006, during which time she suffered a severe thermal burn to the left cornea, by reason of the hospital’s failure to take sufficient steps to safe guard the cornea from the risk of a thermal burn and had negligently allowed the hot probe to come into contact with and burn the cornea. With our assistance the case settled for £12,000.
