Oculoplastic and Reconstructive Surgery
Oculoplastic and Reconstructive Surgery comprises a wide variety of surgical procedures that deal with the orbit (eye socket), eyelids, tear ducts, and the face. Oculoplastic Surgery focuses on the area around the eyes instead of the structures of the eyeball. Ophthalmic surgeon James Kirszrot, M.D. is a board-certified ophthalmologist who has completed an additional several years of highly specialized training in plastic surgery.
Some of the reconstructive services and procedures that The Eye Institute performs include:
Trauma – Trauma to the eyelids and bony orbits often requires surgical repair by an Oculoplastic Surgeon for an optimal functional and aesthetic result.
Congenital Disorders – Congenital disorders can involve the eyelids, lacrimal system and orbits including congenital ptosis, dermoid cysts, nasolacrimal duct obstruction, craniofacial defects.and eyelid malformations.
Ptosis, Ectropion, Entropion (Eyelid malpositions) – Drooping eyelids (ptosis), lower eyelids that hang away from the eye (ectropion) and eyelids that turn in toward the eye (entropion) are conditions that are all treated with various surgical procedures to reposition the eyelid.
Lacrimal Duct Obstruction – Blockage of the tear duct can be surgically repaired to create a new tear drain (Dacryocystorhinostomy or DCR).
