Eye laser surgeon faces trial after ‘lying about surgical mistakes’
Evidence from two patients is heard as the practicality of Dr. Prashant Jindal is examined. Greg Brady, 36, paid £3,500 to have an operation at a private clinic in Fulham, south west London
A laser eye surgeon faces a tribunal over allegations he signed forms for procedures he did not perform, including one that allegedly ruined a patient’s sight.
Evidence from two patients is heard as the practicality of Dr. Prashant Jindal is examined.
A patient, Greg Brady, 36, of Hook, Hants, paid £3,500 for an operation at a private clinic in Fulham, south-west London on December 28, 2016.
In an interview four years ago, the carpenter said he has blurred vision and severe photophobia, which means he can’t open his eyes without being in extreme pain and has to spend most of his time in a darkened room. He claimed this meant he could neither work nor pursue his passion for boxing and was living on welfare.
The allegation reads: “Dr. Jindal claimed to have conducted the procedures.
“It is claimed [he] knew he hadn’t, and his actions were dishonest.”
The tribunal in Manchester, which begins tomorrow, runs until June 10th.
