Oculentis Compensation Claims For Opacification

oculentis recall compensation claim




Oculentis Opacification Problems

The Oculentis opacification issues may have affected hundreds of patients who have undergone procedures to correct problems like cataracts. The opacification (gradual blind spots / cloudiness of the vision) issues has resulted in manufacturer Oculentis recalling batches of their prosthetic intraocular lenses.

If you think you're suffering with opacification, you should seek medical advice immediately. You may find that your vision is cloudy, and you may struggle to see in the affected eye(s) due to blind spots.

If your lens was manufactured by Oculentis, you may be suffering problems because of surface calcification that could have been caused by phosphate remnants from a cleaning agent previously used during the manufacturing process.

Oculentis say that a determination should be made as to the cause of the cloudiness you're suffering from. In some cases, they've agreed to cover the cost of revision surgery.

But for the victims, this isn't enough.

You could be entitled to claim compensation for the pain, suffering and loss of amenity associated with the need for the revision surgery. You can also claim for any losses and expenses caused as a result of the Oculentis-related opacification, which can include claims for lost earnings from time away from work during the revision surgery and recovery process.

In a similar action, we've recovered over £1.3m in damages so far, with patients claiming for the pain and suffering of having to undergo further surgery they should not have had to endure!

That's why we've agreed to represent victims affected by this issue on a No Win, No Fee basis for compensation claims.

Oculentis Compensation Claim - What To Do

You may be able to claim compensation if you're suffering problems that are related to the Oculentis recall.

Because intraocular lenses are surgically inserted, the only way to correct the problem is to remove and replace the lens(es). Even if there's no cost to you for the procedure, there can still be an injury claim for having to undergo another procedure that should not have been necessary. Further surgery also means exposure to the risks associated with another invasive procedure.

You could be entitled to make an Oculentis compensation claim. A legal case for compensation means more than just free revision surgery. It means:

  • General Damages: for any pain, suffering and loss of amenity suffered
  • Special Damages: for additional losses and expenses incurred

Legal cases for Oculentis opacification problems can be complex. We can tell you from years of experience in representing victims in medical product liability actions that winning compensation can be hard. The medical manufacturers like Oculentis often hire expensive law firms to defend them. That's why it's important to claim with us given our particular specialism and experience in medical product actions.

Our lawyers have:

  • Recovered over £1.3m in damages in a similar medical product action
  • Settled (and are still involved) in a number of other medical compensation actions
  • Been appointed to the Steering Committee in one of the biggest consumer actions ever commenced in the High Court of Justice

When it comes to an issue as serious as your eyesight, instructing a law firm with the experience and specialism that we have can be key to recovering the compensation that you deserve.

No Win, No Fee For Oculentis Compensation Claims

Given the Oculentis recall and the outcome of the manufacturer's investigation into the problems, our specialist legal team has determined that there may be a legal case to answer for some victims suffering with opacification that could be caused by Oculentis lenses.

We're therefore prepared to offer No Win, No Fee representation for victims who want to initiate their legal case for Oculentis compensation claim with us.

Subject to you agreeing to the terms and conditions and being eligible for a claim, our No Win, No Fee means we can write off our legal fees if your Oculentis compensation claim does not succeed. That's expert representation from a law firm with decades of experience in helping people claim in complex medical product compensation claims on with No Win, No Fee agreement in place.

About The Oculentis Recall

The initial Oculentis recall took place in December 2014 and was updated in 2017. The most recent Field Safety Notice for the recall of the Lentis foldable Intraocular lenses confirmed that there's a risk of postoperative opacification (gradual blindness / blind spots / cloudiness in the vision). Studies conducted by Oculentis determined that the possible cause of the opacification could be"the result of phosphate remnants originating from a detergent previously used in the cleaning process of the IOL (intraocular lense)".

Oculentis has since stopped using the agent in the production process that is potentially the cause of the calcification, and that the "opacification may compromise the optical transparency of the IOL in time, potentially leading to a slow reduction in the patient's visual acuity".

Time Limits To Claim

There can be numerous time limits to claim when it comes to actions of this nature.

We ask that you please contact our team as a matter of urgency to ensure you don't miss out on your chance to make a claim for compensation.
