Ophthalmic Eye Devices and Contact Lenses

Injured by Dangerous Contact Lenses or After an Eye Surgery Device Malfunctioned?

Most of us take our sight for granted. But those with poor vision often rely on contact lenses and laser eye surgery, cataract surgery, refractive eye surgery or other procedures to see properly. When something goes wrong with an ophthalmic device — such as improperly manufactured contact lenses or a defective ophthalmic surgical system — the results can be catastrophic. For some, the use of a poorly made or designed eye device can lead to partial or permanent blindness. Even defective contact solution has resulted in serious eye infections.

If you or a loved one is using defective contact lenses or was injured during eye surgery because of malfunctioning surgical equipment, we can help. At Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, P.C., our attorneys will represent patients who have been harmed by dangerous ophthalmic devices.

How Do You Know if You Are Using Dangerous Contact Lenses?

Side effects of defective contact lenses include hazy, blurry and otherwise abnormal vision. Poorly made contacts can also cause corneal abrasions and tears. Abrasions and tears of your eye are not only painful, but they could permanently affect your vision and lead to blindness. If you have to make an emergency room visit because of your eyes, it could very well be that you are using defective contact lenses or solution.
