Helping the Victims of Medical Malpractice in Houston

Posterior ischemic optic neuropathy (PION) causes sudden vision loss due to insufficient blood flow to the nerves in the eye. It can occur during serious surgeries or due to significant episodes of hypotension (low blood pressure). Unfortunately, diagnosing PION can be much more challenging than diagnosing related disorders such as anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (AION) because the optic nerve head often appears normal.

If you or a loved one was diagnosed with PION following a surgical procedure or extended bout of low blood pressure, turn to Hampton & King. We handle all types of mismanaged health conditions and cases involving medical negligence. We care about helping you recover fair compensation for your injuries.

Attorney Hartley Hampton has more than 35 years of experience. He is certified in personal injury trial law and civil trial advocacy, making him qualified for your case.
