Common Causes Of Blindness And Loss Of Sight
There are many ways that the negligence of another person can result in blindness or loss of sight. Some common examples include:
- Automobile accidents. When an accident causes trauma to a person’s head and face, the eye can be damaged as well.
- Medical negligence. If a physician fails to request diagnostic testing when an eye examination reveals a sight-threatening condition like glaucoma or cataracts, that negligence can result in permanent loss of sight.
- Surgical errors or complications. This can include damage to the optic nerve or retina during traditional surgery or complications from LASIK surgery.
- Dangerous and defective products. This includes nonsterile eye medication that can cause bacterial growth that damages otherwise healthy eyes.
