Oculoplastic surgery is specialised plastic surgery around the eyelids and face. It is also called oculo-facial surgery as the eyelids are continuous with the forehead, cheeks, and deals with the related tear system (lacrimal) and orbits (deeper structures surrounding the eyeball). Lacrimal surgery is specialised surgery on the tear ducts for watering eyes in children (congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction) and adults, from whatever cause. Oculoplastic surgeons assess and distinguish the many different causes of watering eyes and carry out tear drainage surgery. Surgery often involves endoscopic endonasal approach which is a minimally invasive surgery.
Oculoplastic surgeons train as ophthalmologists (eye surgeons) and then sub-specialise in oculoplastic surgery. They therefore have an in-depth knowledge of the eyelids, the eye and their function.
We provide a comprehensive range of services for eyelid, tearing and orbital conditions in children and adults. The following are the medical conditions and aesthetic treatments that are commonly managed in our clinic.
