Vision loss can be caused by physical trauma to the eye, or by exposure to hazardous chemicals or lights (specifically ultraviolet and blue light). Stroke and brain damage can also lead to vision loss, if the pathways to and from the eyes to the brain are blocked or damaged and the brain cannot interpret the information picked up by the eyes.
Eye injury, blindness, and vision loss are extremely serious conditions that may require both immediate and ongoing care to help a victim lead a more normal and fulfilling life. At Marciano & MacAvoy, P.C., we represent clients across Pennsylvania who have experienced vision loss or any type of eye injury as a result of accidents, exposure to hazardous light or chemicals, and defective or dangerous products.
