Compensation against an Optician

As perhaps one of the most important attributes that we have, our eyesight has a heavy impact on the way that we view the world and as such it’s something that we tend to take very good care of. Our eyes are incredibly delicate and because of this it’s absolutely crucial that we take the best care of them that we possible can – this means taking preventative measures and ensuring that we protect them where we need to.

Visiting an optician is generally something that we do when we need additional help to keep on top of the health of our eyes and in general they will do an excellent job of helping us out. Unfortunately this is not always possible, and if you do find that you have been left with injuries after dealing with an optician then you could look to make a claim for compensation. 

What is an optician?

An optician is generally a qualified eye specialist who will perform examinations, corrections and potentially surgery on your eye where it is needed. Opticians are responsible for examining any potential problems with our eyes and identifying the steps that need to be taken to fix these problems. 

In addition, they may need to perform surgery or put us on health programs which help to promote and encourage the health of our eyes. Over the long term this can help to improve the eyesight of anyone who may be struggling with sight difficulties.

In which circumstances could an optician be responsible for my injuries?

There is always the potential for problems to happen when you are working with an optician and some of the potential problems which can occur include:

  • Damage caused during optical surgery
  • A failure to diagnose an injury
  • A mis-diagnosis of an injury
  • Prescription of an inadequate pair of glasses
  • Providing faulty glasses or prescription sunglasses.
