Medical Oculoplastics

Oculoplastics refers to a type of restorative surgery performed around the eye. Oculoplastic surgery can be performed for medical reasons, cosmetic reasons, or both. Let’s focus on the medical uses for oculoplastic surgery.

Medical oculoplastic surgery encompasses a wide range of surgeries. Medical oculoplastic surgery can be performed to repair the eyelids, eye sockets, tear ducts, cheeks.

Droopy Eyelids, Lower Eyelid Bags & Excess Eyelid Skin

Droopy eyelids are extremely common with age, however some patients experience vision problems when eyelids droop too much. Drooping upper eyelids can eventually obstruct vision, while drooping lower eyelids can cause discomfort and dryness. Lower eyelid bags can also become troublesome after a certain amount of time.

A common oculoplastic procedure, called a blepharoplasty, is performed to correct these issues. During a blepharoplasty, your surgeon makes an incision in either the lower or upper eyelid to manipulate the amount of fat, or in the eyelid crease to reduce excess skin.

Ectropion & Entropion

Eyelids that turn inward are called an entropion, and those that turn outwards are referred to as an ectropion. Both of these conditions can cause corneal damage and discomfort. The only way to fix these issues is through blepharoplasty.

Cancer Removal & Repair

Oculoplastic surgeons are able to remove cancerous growths on the eye, as well as reconstruct the eye after cancer damage. Patients who have cancer on their face, especially near their eyes, often need reconstructive surgery after removal.

Tear Duct Problems

Excessive tearing? You may have a blocked tear duct. Some cases of tear duct blockage are not serious enough to require surgery. However, when other methods of unblocking don’t work, or if the tear duct becomes clogged many times, it may be time for surgery.

Styes, Chalazion & Eyelid Tumors

The oculoplastic surgeon is who you go to when you have an eyelid growth or infection that cannot be treated in a non-surgical method. Some styes and chalazion go away on their own after a certain period of time and with care. Sometimes, they worsen to the point where they will not go down on their own. If you have a stye of chalazion that is very swollen and red for more than a few days, it’s best to make an appointment with your eye doctor.


Cosmetic Surgery

Oculoplastic surgery does more than fix medical issues. It can make a person look and feel 10 years younger. At Cleveland Eye Clinic, we are proud to house some of the most respected oculoplastic surgeons and cosmetic experts in the area. At Cleveland Eye Clinic, we perform cosmetic eye surgery to get rid of unwanted eyelid drooping, excessive skin, and lower eyelid bags.

Upper Blepharoplasty.

An upper blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift, is performed to reduce or eliminate the appearance of skin stretching and sagging, loss of elasticity or unwanted fat redistribution.

Lower Blepharoplasty.

A lower blepharoplasty is generally performed to reduce or eliminate lower eyelid bags.

BOTOX® and Dysport®

BOTOX® cosmetic and Dysport® have long been the first thing people think of when they think about how to reduce wrinkles. Both BOTOX® and Dysport® have been proven safe, easy and effective ways to reduce wrinkles on the forehead and other parts of the face. BOTOX® has also been used for some medical reasons, such as excessive sweating, blepharospasm and migraines. BOTOX® and Dysport® results are quite substantial and natural looking when done correctly. Our cosmetic experts at Cleveland Eye Clinic are here to make you look and feel younger!

Blepharospasm

Blepharospasm is associated with abnormal function of the part of the brain responsible for controlling the muscles. BOTOX® has been proven to reduce the effects of blepharospasm temporarily, although it is not a cure. BOTOX® works by paralyzing the muscle for a period of time.

Thyroid Conditions

Thyroid conditions can affect the eyes and surrounding tissues. The inflamed lacrimal glands may cause dry eye syndrome, or excessive tearing. This condition can cause the eyelids to look puffy or droopy. It can also create an uncomfortable pressure sensation around the eyes. This swelling and discomfort can be reduced through surgery. The eyes are also pushed forward, and it may be difficult to close your eyes. This can cause complications such as corneal ulcers, which can lead to vision loss. If you experience this problem, be sure to contact Cleveland Eye Clinic as soon as possible.
