Wrong Lens Causes Permanent Damage

George Tourloukis made the difficult decision to undergo cataract surgery on his right eye on January 24, 2014. Unfortunately however, Tourloukis’ trust was misplaced since his doctor put in the wrong lens and caused permanent damage and substantial financial loss for him.

Tourloukis has now filed a lawsuit January 21st in Cook County Circuit Court a and has named as defendants in the lawsuit Elmhurst Outpatient Surgery Center LLC, Westchester Eye Surgeons S.C. and Dr. Spero Kinnas, and he alleges medical malpractice.

According to the complaint filed in court, Tourloukis underwent cataract surgery on his right eye under the care of the defendants at the beginning of 2014. Dr. Kinnas allegedly implanted the wrong lens, as well as failing to provide proper follow-up care and neglecting to monitor Tourloukis’ condition. Because of this, Tourloukis claims to have suffered permanent injury and has been unable to work and lost a great deal of money on corrective measures after the January 2014 surgery.

Tourloukis is seeking of $50,000 in damages in the case.
