Oculoplastics is a type of surgery carried out on the eye lids, sockets or eye ball, as well as some areas of the face. Oculoplastic surgeons are trained eye doctors (ophthalmologists) who specialise in this type of treatment.
More on what we do
Our surgeons perform surgery on the eye lid and facial plastic surgery. This includes removal of eyelid cysts, tumours, and reconstruction, repair of eyelids that have turned inwards or outwards (entropion or ectropion), drooping eyelids (ptosis correction) and eyelid reshaping (blepharoplasty).
We also treats blocked tear ducts with a variety of methods.
Minor operations may be carried out in our minor ops room by a specialist practitioner.
