According to the News & Star, Janet Peacock is pursuing damages from NHS Cumbria due to a claim that poor treatment at the West Cumberland Hospital in Whitehaven resulted in her losing the majority of her vision.
Ms Peacock underwent treatment for diabetic eye disease from 1997 and then had screening tests before then having laser eye surgery at the institution in 2003 and 2004.
However, due to the fact professionals there did not follow this up with regular examinations, it was eventually found that she was suffering with a detached retina.
"As a result, the claimant suffered pain, loss of amenity and other loss," her writ served to Carlisle County Court stated.
Consequently, because of the impact this has had on her professionals and personal life, Ms Peacock is seeking a five-figure sum.
