Parents may sue a doctor who operated on the wrong eye of their four year old son. The surgery was performed in Portland,Oregon by Dr. Shawn Goodmen who did not return messages for comment. Dale Matlock and Tasha Gaul say the surgery was supposed to prevent Jesse Matlock's right eye from wandering but say Goodman operated on the left eye. Gaul says she has seen no improvement in the boy's right eye and it appears the left one is now wandering. The hospital where the surgery was performed says it is interviewing its staff about the procedure.
