Laser Surgery Claims & Laser Treatment Claims
Laser surgery may be used for numerous cosmetic and even medical purposes. Depending on the aim and the type of procedure a person opts for, the treatments involve using a high strength beam to heat the cells until they separate, which displays the same result as an incision.
Most Laser treatments are meant to resolve Skin issues or to improve eyesight.
Laser Eye Surgery Negligence
Each year thousands of people turn to Laser eye surgery in the hope their eyesight will be improved and they may well have no more need for spectacles. in the UK, most cosmetic surgery procedures are performed to a high standard, but the sheer numbers of people opting for such surgery suggests that from time to time things may go wrong.
Your eyes are incredibly precious and unsuccessful or negligent laser eye surgery can lead to headaches, discomfort around the eyes, permanently blurred vision or even permanent blindness.
If you believe that your optician or eye surgeon has acted negligently and as a result, you have been left in pain, discomfort or even worse, then there are options available to you in regards to claiming compensation. Compensation can help to fund private & immediate healthcare to try to resolve any unwanted health conditions that have resulted from your initial treatment.

Cosmetic Laser surgery is most commonly used to improve the appearance of:
- Used to tighten skin
- Veins (such as varicose veins and rosacea treatment)
- Skin (including pigment issues, acne scars, etc.)

- Laser tattoo removal
