Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Problems affecting the eyelids, the tear system, the orbit, and adjacent face can arise as a result of birth defects, aging changes, tumors, trauma, or generalized disease such as thyroid disease.  Depending on the reason for your problem, surgery may be described as either cosmetic or reconstructive.

The most common procedures performed by ophthalmic plastic surgeons are eyelid deformities (entropion, ectropion), baggy eyelids (dermatochalasis), scars, trauma, eyelid cancer (malignancy), droopy eyelids (ptosis), loss of an eye (anophthalmos), thyroid disease, birth defects (congenital), and tearduct problems.

These procedures are available and routinely performed at the Idaho Eye Center.
