Oculoplasty, also known as oculoplastic surgery, is a specialized branch of ophthalmology that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of various eye and facial conditions.
Oculoplasty surgeons are experts in managing disorders related to the eyelids, tear ducts, orbit (eye socket), and surrounding facial structures. Common conditions addressed through oculoplasty include eyelid malpositions, orbital fractures, tumors, and tear duct obstructions.
Oculoplasty procedures can be cosmetic or reconstructive, with the goal of improving both the function and aesthetics of the eye and its surrounding structures. Oculoplasty is vital in enhancing the quality of life for patients by addressing both vision-related and cosmetic concerns in the eye area.
