Lasik (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) surgery is a type of refractive laser eye surgery performed by ophthalmologists to correct vision loss caused by myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. Lasik surgery is the most frequently performed surgery in the United States and is designed to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contacts by permanently changing the shape of the cornea (the clear covering of the front of the eye).

Because the eyes are extremely fragile and irreplaceable, Lasik surgery naturally involves some risk. Consequently, not every bad outcome with Lasik surgery results in an actionable Lasik surgery malpractice claim. Lasik surgery malpractice occurs when a doctor’s negligence, or failure to use reasonable care, causes serious injury to a Lasik surgery patient. Additionally, Lasik surgery malpractice claims arise where a doctor fails to provide a Lasik surgery patient with a reasonable explanation of known possible complications and the patient later experiences an injury.
