What is oculoplastic surgery?
Oculoplastic surgery is a general term used to represent a wide range of procedures that involve eyelids, tear ducts, and the orbital region. There are many types of conditions that can affect this part of the eye and its surrounds, from eyelid skin tumours, to eyelid malpositions, reconstruction following tumour excision or trauma and blocked tear ducts.
An oculoplastic surgeon is an ophthalmologist who has completed additional training that focuses on the management of eyelid abnormalities, tearing problems, and orbital disease. With an in-depth knowledge of the eyes and eyelids, in particular the anatomy and function, our team of specialists are equipped to help significantly improve quality of life.
