I am so sorry to hear about your accident. Injuries to the eye can cause very serious problems with vision. The loss of vision can be a terrifying and life-altering experience. In some cases, the loss of vision can be temporary, but in other cases it may be permanent. Depending on what causes the loss of sight, there can in some cases be options for treatment to help victims, as well as aids that can help people to function without their vision.
Injuries to the eye are a common cause of vision loss. Some common causes of eye injuries include traumatic injuries to the eye from an automobile accident or violence, sports injuries, chemical spills, construction accidents, and debris being thrown through the air.
For many people who have lost their vision, there are a couple of treatment options. In some cases, surgery can help, but it’s not an option for everyone. There are also some types of therapies that can help patients regain their vision. There are also new treatment options being tested.
Learning to cope with vision loss takes time. Vision loss can cause balance problems. The victim often needs therapy and assistance. It may be necessary to use aids, such as a cane, therapy dog, and audio assistance devices. Vision loss is serious and life-altering. Anyone who has vision changes should seek medical attention immediately.
In addition to seeking medical treatment, the victim may wish to speak with an attorney. If the eye injury was caused by another person’s wrongful actions, help may be available. Call me, Conal Doyle, Los Angeles personal injury attorney at 310-385-0567. I can help.
