Failure to be told about risks before undergoing surgery

Before lens replacement surgery can lawfully commence patients must be made aware of the risks and alternative treatment by the surgeon so they can give 'informed' consent for the surgery, sadly this is not always the case.

Was you told about the risks of serious complications before undergoing the procedure? Around 1 in 500 patients suffer a serious complication following lens replacement.

If you feel you would not have consented to surgery had you been fully informed of the risks and subsequently your vision was made worse you may be entitled to claim compensation.
