What is oculoplastics
Oculoplastics is a field of ophthalmology dealing with eyelids, tear ducts and eye sockets
both in medical and cosmetic aspects
Surgical correction of the eyelids’ shape (blepharoplasty)
Eyes that look tired due to heavy or puffy eyelids is one of the most common complaints of patients seeking cosmetic surgery.
Surgical correction of eyelid drooping
Eyelid drooping (ptosis) is usually associated with age and occurs when the tendon of the muscle that lifts the eyelid is stretched; as a result, the eyelid drops too low.
Botox and wrinkle filling
With age, the volume of the face decreases, and the skin becomes flabby and loses its elasticity.
Excessive tear production (epiphora)
Healthy eyes have to be moist, so a special tear gland located above the outer third of the upper eyelid produces tears.
Surgical opening of lacrimal canals (tear ducts)
One of the most common complaints of eye problems is excessive lacrimation, which can occur for many reasons. A comprehensive ophthalmological examination is necessary for determining the cause of excessive lacrimation.
