These claims tend to fall into 3 categories, those that involve a delay or failure to diagnose the condition, those that involve a failure to refer onward for more specialist care and those where specialist practitioners have erred and or not taken the severity of the situation into full account. As a consequence of the work of the Diabetic Unit, we have gathered a great deal of expertise in ophthalmic and optical claims (including optical lens placement product liability). In particular: Delay in treatment of detached retina, Misdiagnosis of intra-ocular pressure and subsequent vision distortion / defect, premature or avoidable partial vision loss, Blindness or Permanent vision defects
