Hi, my father went to the eye doctors 2 weeks ago to have a regular check up, the doctor said that she was gonna practice a glaucoma test, we believe that as a result of this test 2 days later my father started being seeing black spots in one eye that kept getting bigger and which provoked him from seeing anything. I'll be honest my father has never had a problem with his vision before, he reads a lot and if he would have had a problem he would of complained because he couldn't have read, so our family feels strong that this problem was caused by the glaucoma test. My father went yesterday to the same eye clinic to complain about his situation, when the same doctor checked up on him again, her response was outrageous. Her answer to his problem was "I don't know what's your problem, go to the emergency room immediatly." The worse was yet to come, throughout that day his second eyer began to trouble him, this time this eye was worse then the other. When he got to the emergency room the doctors told him that something recent had caused the first eye's retina to come loose, if your retina comes completely loose you will become blind. As a result of the first one becoming loose, the second also became loose but the second was worse. The problem now is that to fix both retinas a really expensive lazer surgery is required, the second problem is that the in that hospital that will do the surgery, they dont accept his insurance type. We feel strongly that this problem was due to that glaucoma test he got, and what makes us feel even stronger about it is the reaction that we got from the original eye doctor. My question is can anyone tell me if this can be considered a medical malpractice?
