A West Virginia man was recently awarded over $1 million dollars by a jury due to botched eye surgery. Dr. Mark Whitten from Rockville, Maryland was ordered to pay $850,000 to David N. Cantalupo after operating on the man’s eye and leaving him with permanent eye damage.
Mr. Cantalupo alleged that Dr. Whitten knew about his unusually thin corneas prior to LASIK surgery but did not inform Cantalupo of the risk involved in LASIK with thin corneas.
Dr. Whitten is known for performing laser eye surgery on pro golfer, Tiger Woods.
