According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), over 24.4 million people aged 40 years and older in the US are affected by cataracts and over 2.7 million are affected by glaucoma. Needless to say, countless eye surgery is performed every year.

However, blindness or loss of vision is not only caused by surgery for eye problems. It can occur with improper administration of anesthesia during non-eye-related procedures such as back surgery or other surgical procedures that take a large amount of time to be performed.

Many patients who are newly blinded are told their vision loss is caused by optic nerve damage. This damage is a result of a disturbance in the flow of blood rich in oxygen to the optic nerve while the surgery is being performed.

Other causes of blindness include LASIK surgery, non-sterile eye medication, doctor or hospital negligence, etc. If your loss of vision or blindness has been caused by the negligence of another person, you can bring a medical malpractice claim or lawsuit against them and receive compensation. You can receive monetary compensation for:

· Medical bills

· Pain and suffering

· Emotional distress

· Loss of income

· Future medical costs
