Eye Injury Lawyers Levy Konigsberg LLP on Eye Injury Prevention Month
Eye injury lawyers Levy Konigsberg LLP who specialize in New York medical malpractice law, are providing information for the public to raise awareness for Eye Injury prevention, treatment, causes (including surgical mistake cases) and legal advice. Recently, a former FDA adviser who voted to approve the Lasik procedure now says the procedure should be banned because of the complications some patients experience. More than one million people suffer eye injuries each year in the United States. Accidents are one of the leading causes of visual impairment in the United States each year. Eye injury lawyers, including Levy Konigsberg LLP who specialize in New York medical malpractice law, work cases from chemical exposure, car accidents, battery acid, sports accidents, fireworks, workshop accidents, defective machinery, defective yard equipment, or surgical mistake cases such as the negligence of a physician in performing laser procedures on a patient’s eye. All of these cases have shown that the loss of the ability to see or the diminishment of one’s visual acuity is devastating. It impacts your career and every aspect of you personal life.
Elmiron is prescribed to treat interstitial cystitis, or bladder pain syndrome. In 2018, an article by the American Academy of Ophthalmology revealed that several patients had been diagnosed with retinal maculopathy after being treated with Elmiron for interstitial cystitis. Maculopathy refers to a variety of pathological disorders of the central part of the retina, known as the macula. If the condition is untreated, it can result in serious, long-term vision impairment or loss. Lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturers of Elmiron for failing to warn against the dangers of retinal damage.
At Levy Konigsberg LLP our experienced eye injury lawyers are committed to helping victims who have lost the ability to view life as they once could, with pristine clarity and acuity.

Eye injury lawyers have worked cases where defective products have cause eye injuries, loss of acuity, corneal abrasions, necessity of corneal transplants or even blindness; these products include tables saws, hand and power drills, nail guns, screw guns, jig saws, and spray guns. Eye injury lawyers have also worked cases where injuries resulted from welding, fireworks, exploding car batteries and accidents with household chemicals.
The negligent performance of surgical procedures (surgical mistake cases) on the eye which utilize a laser, such as LASIK, glaucoma surgery or cataract surgery can also lead to catastrophic vision reducing or eliminating injuries. Besides surgical mistake cases, the failure to timely diagnose certain eye conditions such as glaucoma or infectious process can also rob one of their ability to see.
