Are You Suffering From Complications Following Cataract Surgery?
Cataract surgery is an extremely common medical procedure. A cataract is a clouding of the eye lens that typically forms in older people. Over time, a cataract can grow larger and cause impaired vision, making surgery necessary. During cataract surgery, the defective lens is removed and a new artificial lens is implanted. Though this procedure is fairly routine, mistakes do happen. Our firm has recovered millions of dollars in cases involving negligent cataract surgery.
At Nagel Rice, we believe that negligent parties should be held responsible when eye surgery errors occur. Contact Nagel Rice, LLP, at 973-618-0400 to arrange a consultation with a knowledgeable medical malpractice lawyer.

Because cataract surgeries are so routine, even inadequately trained doctors may be attempting to perform them. Some mistakes that can happen during the process include:
- Damaging a portion of the eye
- Leaving a piece of lens in the eye
- Inserting the wrong implant
- Using unsterile instruments
- Anesthesia errors
- Failure to follow up post-surgery
