Eye patient says he received wrong implant

By Louie Torres | Jun 22, 2016

CHICAGO — A patient is suing Abe Kaplan, M.D.; Eye Physicians, S.C.; and other unidentified medical care providers, alleging negligence and insufficient measures taken to prevent injuries.

Robert A. Levin filed a complaint on June 10 in Cook County Circuit Court against the defendants, alleging that they failed to provide him with proper medical care.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he suffered damages as a result of an intraocular acrylic lens that was implanted into him on June 13, 2014, but which was intended for another person. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because they allegedly failed to properly inspect the implant to check if it was the correct one for him.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendants in a sum in excess of $50,000 plus court costs. He is represented by J. Samuel Tenenbaum of Tenenbaum Law, LLC in Chicago.
