Cornea and external eye diseases

Ophthalmic plastic surgery (oculoplastics)

Our staff is experienced in the various surgeries for eye lid and muscle disorders. Oculoplastics deals with the external structures of the eye, including:

  • eyelids
  • tear ducts
  • orbit (bony cavity surrounding the eye)
