LEARN ABOUT A TREATMENT

Oculoplastic Surgery

Oculoplastics provides both cosmetic and functional treatment of disorders around the eyes, including the brows, eyelids and the bones in the surrounding area. Functional oculoplastic surgery involves the repair of areas causing visual impairment, such as congenital defects, tumors, abnormal eyelid positioning, and bones around the eyes. Cosmetic surgery enhances appearance and self-image by reconstructing features around the eyes, such as lid lifts, BOTOX®, and Restylane®.

Some common oculoplastic surgeries include:

Ptosis
This is a drooping of the upper eyelid that can affect one or both eyes. If severe enough, it can lead to other conditions, making treatment important before other forms of vision impairment arise.

Blepharoplasty
This is one of the most common oculoplastic surgeries. It reduces excess skin and fat in the eyelids, which can sometimes hinder vision, while often creating a more youthful appearance.

Entropion
This is a medical condition where the eyelid folds inward, leading the eyelashes to rub against the cornea of the eye.
