Lower eyelid blepharoplasty corrects the puffy, baggy areas below your eyes. Following lower eyelid blepharoplasty, one should look well rested.

BOTOX is commonly used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles, but it can also temporarily relieve eyelid and facial spasms.

Children who are born with blocked tear ducts, also called congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction, can be treated with pediatric tear duct surgery.

Correction of tear duct obstruction in adults usually requires a surgery called dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) to create a new tear passageway.

Ptosis repair surgery helps to restore droopy eyelids, often caused by a weak/separated muscle in the eyelid, for an improved appearance and vision.

A trauma to the eye can cause the bones of the eye socket to fracture and may require surgery to restore the function and appearance of the eye.

Orbital tumors are abnormal growths in the eye socket that may need to be surgically removed for a biopsy and to restore the appearance of the eye.

Abnormal growths on the eyelid, known as tumors, are surgically removed to determine if the tissue is cancerous and needs further medical attention.

Eyelid reconstruction repairs the normal appearance and proper function of the upper and/or lower eyelids after a tumor removal or other trauma.

Enucleation is an oculoplastic surgery that removes the entire eyeball from the optic nerve when needed from an eye trauma, tumor, or ocular disease.

After an eyeball is removed, the patient has the option of having an artificial eye made and fitted into the eye socket to normalize their appearance.
