Common eye conditions that can be corrected with Oculoplasty

Watery eye (Lacrimation / Epiphora)


​A watery eye is caused by over production of tears due to irritation by in-growing lashes, infection, eyelid disease or an obstruction in the drainage of tears in the eye. The treatment depends on the causes of the disease. For example, if the lower eyelid is sagging away from the eye, eyelid will be repositioned through surgery.


A few oculoplasty procedures : 


Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)


Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that removes excess eyelid tissues (skin, muscle, or fat) and so make your eyes looks beautiful. It can be performed on the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both. Sometimes excess upper eyelid tissue obstructs the upper visual field or can weigh down the eyelid tiring the eyes. The procedure is also used to improve facial appearance by making the area around the eyes firmer and eliminating sagging skin under the eyes.


Brow lifts


Brow lifts are most often resorted to for cosmetic reasons to restore a youthful appearance. It can also help to correct the drooping brow in cases where the facial nerve has been damaged (e.g. in Bell's Palsy). The procedure aimed at restoring the brow's position can be an open surgery or accomplished with an endoscopic approach with small incisions made behind the hairline. The advantage of the endoscopic approach is that there are no visible scars and here you will get best service for any eye problem surgery.
