A man who lost his left eye sight recently filed a lawsuit against pharmacy giant CVS, claiming a pharmacist negligently gave him the wrong medication, KHOU stated on June 19.
Reports said Claudis Alston suffered from pinkeye infection in 2012 and had it checked at Houston Methodist Hospital. After he was given an eye treatment prescription at the hospital, he went to a local CVS Pharmacy to pick up the medication. However, a CVS pharmacist allegedly gave Alston, 65, an anti-bacterial drop used to treat ear infections. Alston was reportedly rushed to the hospital after experiencing excruciating pain upon dropping the ear drops into his infected eye. The hospital said his left eye was completely blinded.
