Cataract implants compensation claims

Cataract implants legal advice

24.02.2006

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency issued device alerts on Monday 12th April, 2004 to all UK hospitals asking that they identify those patients who received either Hydroview or Aqua-sense intra-ocular lenses and to consider offering the patients an appointment.

A packaging error is thought to be the blame for the fault, which can cause cloudiness and poor vision. Two specific brands are involved. The affected brands are:

  • Bausch and Lomb Hydroview H60M intraocular lens fitted between 1997 and 2001.
  • Opthalmic Innovations International Inc Aqua-sense fitted between December 1999 and 2000.

Lens implants (also known as intra-ocular lenses) are used in cataract surgery to replace the patient's own lens.
