Patient Says She Got the Wrong Implanted Lens--Twice

Carolyn “Dufrene asserts that on March 8, 2013 she came under the care of Haley and Silbernagel of Eye Care Surgery Center, located at 706 W. 15th Ave. in Covington, due to deteriorating vision because of cataracts in both eyes. On May 29, 2013 the plaintiff contends she underwent surgery to implant a lens in her eye, but after the operation she suffered from eye pain and had difficulty seeing out of the eye before it was determined that the wrong lens had been implanted. Dufrene claims the wrong lens had been implanted because the eye had been improperly tested prior to the surgery<’,” reports the Louisiana Record. “The plaintiff alleges that on June 17, 2013 she underwent a second surgery on her left eye to install the proper implant and that afterward she continued to have difficulty seeing out of the eye. Dufrene claims that when she went to get a second opinion another doctor told her that the wrong lens had been inserted again resulting in her vision only being 20/400 and that she would need another corrective surgery or would have to wear glasses to correct her vision.” Read more.
