Lowell Larson filed suit against Dr. Jeffery R. Weis and Northern Reflective Surgery Center of Hermantown after alleging they failed to warn him of the risks associated with LASIK surgery and caused “significant and permanent disturbances to his vision”. The eight person jury selected in the case agreed and awarded Larson $3,002,950.

According to DuluthNewsTribune.com

The 10th and final question on the special verdict form asked jurors how much money would fairly and adequately compensate Larson for future pain, disability, embarrassment and emotional distress reasonably certain to occur in the future directly caused by the LASIK surgery.

Jury foreman Steffan M. Johnson wrote in the figure “$2,687,500 or $62,500 a year for 43 years.”

Jurors determined that $312,500 would compensate Larson for pain, disability, embarrassment and emotional distress up to the time of trial and $2,950 for medical expenses up to the time of trial.
