World class Oculoplastic surgery - right on your door step

What is Oculoplastic surgery

Oculoplastic surgery is the term used for a variety aesthetic, medical and surgical management of all abnormalities of the eyelids and associated facial areas.

Surgery is primarily undertaken to resolve these abnormalities in order to maintain, restore or improve function and appearance. This can include eyelid cysts and tumours, ptosis (‘droopy eyelids’), the inward or outward turning of the lower eyelid, ‘staring eyes’ (related to thyroid eye disease), watering eyes and artificial (prosthetic) eyes.

Oculoplastic surgery also relates to the eyes’ tear duct systems and orbits (deeper structures surrounding the eyeball).

Who can be treated

Conditions requiring Oculoplastic surgery vary greatly and can affect anyone. Most often these conditions become more noticeable as people age. Furthermore, they can affect either eyelid or both at the same time.

What are the benefits

As people age, changes in the structure of the tissue in their face occur. Tendons loosen, muscles weaken and skin loses its elasticity. Most people benefit from Oculoplastic surgery in one of two ways;

  • Either by relieving clinical conditions like Epiphora, (an eye that is watering excessively) or Ectropion (the lower eyelid turns outward away from the eye, increasing the risk of damage to the cornea)
  • Or by simply aesthetically enhancing the affected areas to reduce the visible effects of ageing.
