$750,000.00 Settlement For The Mismanagement Of Glaucoma

March 30, 2017 / Jeff Meyers

A forty-eight-year-old man suffered blindness after his glaucoma was mismanaged by his eye doctor. The lawsuit alleged that the physician diagnosed the wrong form of glaucoma, open-angle glaucoma, and missed the signs and symptoms that showed the patient was actually suffering from the more severe and more dangerous form: angle closure glaucoma. Because of the error, the doctor never ordered the appropriate treatment and the patient lost a significant portion of his vision before seeking help from another ophthalmologist.
