What is the sub-specialty of oculoplastic surgery?

Ophthalmology is the field of medicine that encompasses all aspects of eye care (medical, surgical and optical).  Oculoplastic surgeons are board certified ophthalmologists who have specialized training in taking care of the tissues and bones that support and enhance the normal function of the eyes. They perform cosmetic and reconstructive surgery around the eyes and mid facial region.

The field of ophthalmic plastic surgery may not be familiar to some. However, with casual observation you may find children or adults with eyelid problems. These include baggy or droopy eyelids, tearing, eyelid malpositions (turning out, turning in, or retracted), bulging eyes, eyelid twitching, or a mass (mole, lump, or inflammation) of the eyelid.
