What is an Optician Negligence Claim?
The problems of optician negligence is one that our optician negligence and medical negligence solicitors know all too well. Medical negligence is not isolated to GPs and hospitals, any and all health services owe patients a duty of care, and have their own set of guidelines and targets that they must meet in order to maintain patient safety. This includes opticians and optometrists. If you have suffered from negligent treatment from a optician or optometrist, and have suffered from eye damage or worsening eye sight as a result, you could be eligible to make a no win no fee optician negligence claim with our specialist no win no fee solicitors.
Common types of Optician Negligence Claims?
Optician negligence could include:
Inadequate examination that fails to identify a potential condition which
progressively worsens and damages a patient’s eyesight
Prescribing the wrong strength lenses for glasses or contact lenses causing further damage
Failure to refer patients to eye specialists where needed
Delays in referrals to eye specialists
These are just some of the acts of optician negligence that can occur and lead to a successful no win no fee optician negligence claim being made with our specialist solicitors.

Symptoms of Optician Negligence:
When it comes to optician negligence, there are a number of different symptoms that can appear as a result. It is important to remember that these symptoms alone are not concrete evidence of optician negligence, but can indicate an issue.
Knowing how to recognise the physical symptoms of optician negligence can be very useful to let our clients know when they can make an optician negligence claim.
Optician negligence symptoms can include (but are not limited to):
Severe headaches and migraines
Partial or full loss of sight
Poor night vision
Neck and shoulder pain
Poor vision sharpness, especially in daylight
Private optician negligence claims:
With optician services not being provided for free under the NHS for most adults, our optician negligence solicitors know that many people choose to visit private opticians, often found on any busy high street in our town centres. If you have suffered from optician negligence in a private opticians or private medical facility, you could still be entitled to make an optician negligence claim. Many people choose to pay extra to receive private medical care in order to receive the best treatment, and avoid suffering from medical negligence.
When this does not happen, and private medical patients suffer from optician negligence leading to injury or illness, it can be particularly distressing. The process of making a private medical negligence claim is similar to that of an NHS negligence claim, and it can actually be easier to make a successful like for like private optician negligence claim.
This is because when you receive private medical care, you will enter into a written contract with the private opticians as a paying customer, specifically outlining the standard of care that you should receive. This can make it much easier for a medical negligence solicitor to prove that this standard of care has been breached. For more information on making a private optician negligence claim, and how the process will work, contact our optician negligence solicitors here today.
NHS Optician Negligence Compensation Claims:
Many optician negligence claims can be made against the NHS for their optician services. If you have suffered from negligent eye care, or optician treatment under the NHS, then you could work with our no win no fee Optician Negligence Solicitors to make an Optician Negligence Claim for financial compensation against the NHS.
If you are also making a formal complaint through the NHS complaints process, it is important to note that it is possible to have an open and ongoing NHS complaint, and an active no win no fee compensation claim with our solicitors at the same time. If you have already launched a complaint through the NHS, our medical negligence solicitors are here to let you know that you do not need to wait until it has been resolved until you seek legal advice or assistance from our team.
Optician negligence - a case study:
Recently, our specialist optician negligence solicitors worked with a client who suffered from optician negligence as part of an eye test that he had carried out as part of his job role as a Heavy Goods Vehicle Driver. This was necessary in order to renew his licence and carry out his job. After securing the results of this eye test and submitting them to the DVLA, our client was told that his renewal of his licence had been refused as the eye test results had shown that he had problems with glare intolerance. After our client then sought another eye test from a specialist Ophthalmologist, which clarified that our client had no glare intolerance, sharing this information with the DVLA.
However, due to the conflicting medical results, the DVLA refused to change their decision, and our client had by this point been unable to carry out his job role for a number of months and was therefore missing out on the earnings, and unable to pay for his mortgage, or living expenses.
As part of building our client’s optician negligence claim, our specialist no win no fee solicitors were able to use our legal expertise to establish a number of acts of optician negligence carried out by the first optician to see our client.
This optician negligence included:
A failure to correctly assess or diagnose the Claimant’s actual medical state
Failure to properly or accurately complete the DVLA D4 Assessment Form
A failure to admit his error in such a timely fashion as would have avoided or minimised the Claimant’s losses
And a failure to seek guidance in completing the D4 Assessment Form
After establishing the negligence that occurred in our client’s claim, our optician negligence solicitors got to work, valuing our client’s claim, taking into account the lost earnings that he had suffered from as a result of the negligence, in order to obtain the maximum financial compensation. When you work with MG Legal’s no win no fee optician negligence solicitors, you can rest assured that your designated solicitor will go above and beyond to ensure that you get the compensation and justice that you deserve in your claim, and will leave no stone unturned in gathering evidence to build your claim to be as strong as possible.

How long do I have to make an Optician Negligence Claim?
As is the case with most medical negligence claims, you have three years within which to make an optician negligence claim after the date of the negligence that occurred. This is subject to the 1980 Limitation Act. However, if you were not aware of the injuries that you suffered until a later date, this becomes known as the date of knowledge, and the three year period starts instead from this date to make an Optician Negligence Claim.
While this three years may seem like a long period in which to make an Optician Negligence Claim with a solicitor, there is no saying how long a particular claim will take to build, or how long it will take our medical negligence solicitors to gather all of the medical and legal evidence available for your Optician Negligence Claim.
Because of this, our medical negligence solicitors always advise all of our potential clients to get in touch as soon as possible, and speak to a solicitor in a free, no-obligation consultation. This allows us to get to work on building your Optician Negligence Claim the same working day, and obtain the maximum financial compensation available for you as our client.
