Oculoplastic, Orbital, and Reconstructive Surgery
The staff of the Oculoplastic, Orbital, and Reconstructive Surgery service diagnose and treat problems associated with the eyelids, tear glands, tear ducts, and orbit. Eyelid problems include drooping eyelids, turning out of the eyelids, in-turning of the eyelids, misdirection of eyelashes, excessive eyelid skin, eye muscle spasms, eyelid injuries, inflammations, and tumors. Tear system problems include tear gland tumors and excessive tearing; abnormalities, obstructions and injuries of the tear duct; and infection of the tear sac. Orbital disorders often cause prominence of the eye and consist of Graves’ Disease (thyroid eye disease), inflammations and infections of the orbit, orbital tumors, injuries and fractures of the orbit, and eye socket problems.
