If they made a mistake in treating the wound that caused the scar, then yes, they may be responsible for the costs of fixing it, plus any missed work and pain and suffering. If, however, the possibility of scarring was one of the risks of the procedure that you had done, and they told you about the risk in advance, then you may not be able to recover (if they didn't make a mistake). That's the standard in a medical malpractice case. It comes down to whether similar doctors would have done the same thing in that situation or if your doctor made a mistake. It sounds like they may have made a mistake, but I'm not an eye surgeon.
Medical malpractice cases are difficult to evaluate online. What the injured party needs to win is a medical expert who can say "Here's what happened. Here's what should have happened, and here's what the doctor did wrong." That requires having someone who can read the medical records and look at your injuries (also, make sure you have plenty of pictures, because the scar may heal at least a bit over time. You want to be able to show how bad it was). Many medical malpractice attorneys have doctors that they work with regularly who can review records for them. Most of them work on a contingency basis, so you would only pay the lawyer after you win the case. A good place to find someone in your area is http://www.martindale.com
