Oculoplastic and Orbital Disease



Oculoplastic and orbital surgery (also known as oculofacial surgery, or ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery) is a wide-ranging subspecialty that addresses conditions of the eyelids, eye socket (orbit), face, and tear drainage system.  Commonly performed procedures include surgical correction of droopy eyelids (ptosis repair), excess eyelid skin (blepharoplasty), abnormal eyelid position (ectropion and entropion repair), drooping eyebrows, eyelid trauma and defects following skin cancer removal (Mohs surgery), tear duct obstructions, and orbital fractures.  Other commonly treated conditions include thyroid orbitopathy (Graves eye disease), benign and malignant tumors of the eyelids and orbit, blepharospasm, and orbital inflammation.  Cosmetic facial rejuvenation of the eyelids and eyebrows, both minimally invasive (Botox and fillers) and surgical, is also available on a self-pay basis.
