Is this normal: I had bi lateral upper-eyelid blepharoplasty back in July. Sent home with eye drops. Very sore 'left' eyeball. Three weeks later, admitted into ER with chronic head and eye pain, serious infection. I am now blind in this eye. It appears I have a perforated eyeball, caused during surgery.
As my question explains, I have not had a pleasant time. I have endured four further eye surgeries to correct my eye problems. I am left without sight in one eye.Is this a risk factor for blepharoplasty or a case of malpractice?
Due to problems experienced during surgery.
