Common conditions evaluated and treated by our ophthalmologists include:
- diseases of the optic nerve (including giant cell arteritis)
- visual field defects
- visual loss
- unequal pupil size
- eyelid abnormalities
Orbital and oculoplastic surgeons specialize in conditions that involve the upper face, eyelids, and orbit. Common conditions evaluated and corrected by orbital and oculoplastic surgeons include droopy eyelids and eyebrows, blepharoplasty, eyelid malposition and tumors, excessive tearing, artificial eye implants, and conditions involving the orbit including tumors and fractures.
While sometimes eyelid surgery can be for cosmetic reasons, there are often functional benefits, such as improvement in your visual field while reading or driving.
