Anaesthetic awareness during eye surgery – £2,000

Mr Henry was undergoing surgery on his eye to remove a cataract and insert a corneal implant. Mr Henry was awake during the procedure and was given only anaesthetic eye drops. The drops proved to be inadequate and Mr Henry suffered extreme pain and distress during the full course of the operation.

We pursued a claim for Mr Henry as the surgery on the basis that the operation should have been done under a general anaesthetic.
