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.
