How To Become The Best Cataract Surgery Expert Witness?
A cataract surgery expert witness may be asked to give evidence in two main situations. Firstly give an opinion about whether the standard of care that has been provided is up to the mark. This is most likely to be in the form of a written report, but you may also need to give oral evidence to a court. You may feel awkward about giving evidence ‘against’ a colleague, but it is important to remember that the purpose of an expert witness report is to help the court to determine the facts.
The duties of a cataract surgery expert witness
The second one is when a retina expert witness is asked to give their opinion about whether a person is able to see well enough to do a particular task, or whether an event that is alleged to have occurred could have occurred, for example, would it be possible to ascertain a particular finding from a particular test. This may be in a regulatory or legal case.
How do things work in this field?
When you are acting as an expert witness you have a duty to the court, and not to the person who commissioned you. If, after you have written your report, you change your view on a relevant matter, or new evidence comes to light that affects your opinion you must make sure that those who have commissioned you, the other party and the judge are made aware of this as soon as possible.
If you do not have the expertise to give your opinion on a particular matter you must make this clear. This would be by either refusing to give your opinion on the matter or by making it clear that you feel the matter is outside your sphere of expertise.

In most of the states of the USA, some forms of special procedural rules exist for medical malpractice cases. These rules are designed to make using a health care provider more difficult when compared with “ordinary” cases for personal injury.
