Our eyes need to see constantly. Without it, even the simplest tasks can become challenging. Similarly, eye surgery is complex and requires very competent surgeons. Any mistakes or faults can cause eyesight loss, which is devastating. In fact, we receive a huge number of eye injury claims throughout the year. Having an eye injury can be very fatal; and also have a significant impact on a victim’s career and personal life.
