The eye is an incredibly complex organ, and those who focus on the health and treatment of our eyes go through an incredible amount of training. The field of ophthalmology includes many different specialties, ranging from professionals who treat pediatric genetic conditions to those who handle plastic surgery around our eyes (and every other eye issue in between).
Ophthalmology malpractice occurs when an eye doctor’s conduct causes an injury to a patient’s eye or harms their vision. Some of the types of ophthalmology malpractice we list here are similar to traditional medical malpractice claims, while others are fairly exclusive to ophthalmologists.
