Oculoplastics

OCULOPLASTIC SURGERY

A specialized branch of ophthalmology focused on the structures surrounding the eye, including the eyelids, orbit (eye socket), tear ducts, and the face around the eyes. Oculoplastic surgery is a subspecialty within ophthalmology that involves surgical procedures aimed at correcting abnormalities, injuries, or diseases affecting these delicate structures.

Oculoplastic surgery encompasses a range of surgical procedures designed to treat various conditions related to the eyelids, tear ducts, and surrounding facial areas. These surgeries include but are not limited to eyelid reconstruction, repair of droopy eyelids (ptosis surgery), removal of eyelid tumors or lesions, correction of eyelid malpositions (entropion, ectropion), orbital fracture repairs, treatment of tear duct obstruction, and cosmetic procedures such as blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) to enhance appearance.

What is a Oculoplastic Surgery?

Oculoplastic surgery, also known as ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery, is a specialized branch of ophthalmology that deals with the management of eyelid, orbital (eye socket), and lacrimal (tear duct) disorders. Here’s a comprehensive overview of oculoplastic surgery

Scope of Oculoplastic surgery:

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty): This involves surgical procedures to correct functional and aesthetic issues related to the eyelids. It can address conditions like droopy eyelids (ptosis), excess skin or fat deposits, and wrinkles.

Orbital Surgery: This pertains to surgical procedures involving the eye socket. It may involve the management of tumors, fractures, or other disorders affecting the orbital area.

Lacrimal System Surgery: This focuses on the treatment of disorders related to the tear ducts. This includes procedures to correct blocked tear ducts, often referred to as dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR).

Reconstructive Surgery: This encompasses procedures to repair or reconstruct structures of the eye and surrounding areas after trauma, surgery, or congenital anomalies.

Cosmetic Surgery: Oculoplastic surgeons also perform cosmetic procedures to enhance the appearance of the eyes, such as eyelid lifts or botox injections.

Oculoplastic Surgery

Conditions Treated:

Ptosis: Drooping of the upper eyelid due to weak or stretched eyelid muscles.

Entropion and Ectropion: Conditions where the eyelids turn inwards (entropion) or outwards (ectropion), causing irritation and discomfort.

Eyelid Tumors: Benign or malignant growths on the eyelids.

Orbital Tumors: Growth in or around the eye socket.

Thyroid Eye Disease (Graves’ Disease): A condition where the immune system attacks the thyroid gland, causing eye-related symptoms.

Blepharospasm and Hemifacial Spasm: Conditions characterized by involuntary spasms or twitching of the eyelids.

What is “Advanced”
Oculoplastic Surgery?

Incisional Techniques: Surgeons make precise incisions to access and modify the affected areas. These may be hidden within the natural creases of the eyelids for cosmetic purposes.

Endoscopic Techniques: Small cameras and instruments are used to perform minimally invasive procedures through tiny incisions.

Laser Surgery: Laser technology may be used for certain oculoplastic procedures, providing precise and controlled tissue removal.
