Why would you need an expert ophthalmologist witness?

General ophthalmologists perform surgical procedures that are generally highly successful. They monitor medical conditions like glaucoma and diabetic disease. Sub-specialists like retinal, corneal, and glaucoma surgeons handle more complex situations and perform higher-risk kinds of surgery. All of those situations are difficult for anyone but an ophthalmologist to decipher and understand. An experienced general ophthalmologist or a retina surgery expert witness who is in active medical and surgical practice features a singular understanding of what can possibly go awry in medical and surgical situations.

The opinion of an expert is invaluable to attorneys who could be trying to work out whether actual malpractice is present. This will represent savings in time and expense for the attorney and client. When a case is initiated by an attorney, the price of the eye surgery expert witness in deposition and trial cannot be overstated. This will be the key to success in obtaining a settlement or in winning a case in trial.
