While there is not a specific code section that may require a person to hire an attorney to file an injury claim, that does not mean you should try to file a claim without an attorney, especially defective medical device claims. Defective medical device claims are complex. These cases often involve federal laws and mass tort cases. Large law firms are retained to represent medical device manufacturers. These law firms have years of experience and almost endless resources to fight defective medical device claims.

Therefore, it is usually in your best interest to contact a defective medical device claims attorney about your case. The product liability lawyers of The Olinde Firm are investigating injury claims related to the CyPass Micro-Stent manufactured by Alcon Research LTD.

Common Injuries and Complications Related
to the CyPass Micro-Stent

Some of the injuries and complications reported by patients who have the eye stent implanted include:

  • Blindness or loss of vision
  • General eye injuries
  • Eye discomfort or pain
  • Swelling
  • Corneal transplant
  • Epithelial cell loss
  • Glaucoma progression

If your physician implanted the CyPass Micro-Stent after surgery, the FDA advises patients to make an appointment with their doctor as quickly as possible.

FDA Issues Class 1 Recall for CyPass Micro-Stents

The FDA initially issued a Safety Communication before it issued its Class 1 Recall. The device’s manufacturer, Alcon Research LTD, had issued a voluntary recall on August 28, 2018. Patients have reported a variety of injuries and complications associated with the eye stent. Incidents should be reported to your physician immediately and reported to the FDA through its MedWatch Reporting System.

Even if you are not experiencing problems at this time, waiting to contact your physician could result in severe injuries or damage to the eye. Your physician can discuss the complications and risks associated with the CyPass Micro-Stent device in more detail. You can also discuss your medical options with your doctor to determine the best course to take to protect your health and your vision.
