AMO Acanthemoeba claim wait

Discussion in 'Optometry Archives' started by billywhizhillier, Dec 12, 2007.

  1. Hi, I live in the UK, and I am still waiting for a response to my AMO
    claim for my cornea damage by Acanthemoeba. My solicitor has informed
    me that it is now in AMO USA hands, but they may drag it out hoping I
    may give up. Can anyone tell me of the progress in the USA. Have there
    been any claims in the USA??
    I am having problems over in the UK to get funding, which makes it
    difficult to progress rapidly.

    This is typical of joining a "class action", it grinds out in court
    forever and the lawyers get all the money.
    It's possible that the lawsuit will outlive you.

    Not to mention that the FDA has yet to approve a single drug to treat
    acanthamoeba. The medications have to be imported.

    It's a can of worms...no pun intended.
