Pryers secured compensation for Mr K after an optician’s negligence caused a loss of vision in his left eye.

When Mr K attended his regular optician for a routine review, an examination revealed that there were problems with the pressures in his left eye.

He was advised that a letter would be sent to his GP with further information. The letter was not sent as promised and weeks later Mr K returned to his opticians to raise concern.

On repeat examination it was confirmed that Mr K was suffering from glaucoma and that he needed urgent ophthalmic assessment.

With Pryers’ representation, Mr K received an admission of liability from his optician. They accepted that they had been negligent in failing to refer him urgently to the Eye Hospital after the initial examination.

Pryers’ investigations established that, had it not been for the optician’s negligence, Mr K would have received immediate treatment when he first presented, which would have lowered his intraocular pressure. He would then have undergone laser surgery to avoid visual field loss.

Unfortunately, as a result of the delay in treatment, Mr K developed angle closure glaucoma and lost the majority of vision in his left eye, with persistent double vision.

After such a difficult time, Mr K was keen to see a conclusion to his claim. Pryers negotiated an out of court settlement of £27,000 which he was pleased to accept.
