Contact lenses expert witnesses may become relevant in the event of numerous lawsuits, since contact lenses are a commonly prescribed form of visual correction. Contact lenses expert consulting may provide valuable information for cases involving such areas as ophthalmology, general optometry, LASIK and PRK laser vision correction surgery, and other issues pertaining to vision care, as each may be at the center of possible contact lenses-related litigation.
Contact lenses experts usually have experience working in the vision care field, which often involves several forms of treatment for vision and perception, such as cataract surgery, ophthalmologic surgery, ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery, laser surgery, refractive surgery, or other types of surgical procedures. Like each facet of the medical industry, however, contact lenses expert witnesses may be tasked with providing an expert opinion regarding the use and effectiveness of vision care surgery, as any form of medical malpractice, including those involving prescription medication, neglecting a patient, failing to properly inform a patient of his or her treatment, or other possible issues, would be grounds for litigation.
Contact lenses experts may also be sought out for a case if the lenses in question caused any sort of harmful side effects and/or discomfort for the patient, since any unforeseen issue may result in potential lawsuits.
