Oculoplastic Services

Oculoplastic services diagnose and treat conditions affecting the eyelids, tear ducts, and the cavity surrounding the eye (orbital cavity). Skin and structural alterations in this facial area can be caused by aging, physical traumas, or diseases like tumors that alter the normal anatomy.

Your eyelids, tear ducts, and orbit can be affected by a range of conditions, including:

At EyesNY, we offer different oculoplastic services that restore functionality and return your confidence. These include surgery, skin lifts, and tumor removal. 

Depending on the root of your condition and specific case, your doctor will determine the best treatment plan. By performing multiple tests and assessments, the best way to address your condition will be chosen.

Conditions We Treat with Oculoplastic Services

EyesNY specialists offer oculoplastic services to treat the following conditions.

Graves Disease

Graves disease is an autoimmune disorder that affects the thyroid gland, causing an overproduction of thyroid hormone. Its symptoms include weight loss, anxiety, heat intolerance, sweating, and rapid heartbeat.

Graves disease can cause inflammation of the muscles and tissue around the eyes, leading to bulging eyes, double vision, dry eyes, and eye pain.

Thyroid Disease

Two main types of thyroid diseases affect the thyroid gland: 

  • Hypothyroidism occurs when not enough thyroid hormone is produced. This can lead to symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain, dry skin, hair loss, depression, and cold intolerance. 
  • Hyperthyroidism happens when too much thyroid hormone is produced. Symptoms include weight loss, rapid heartbeat, anxiety, tremors, heat intolerance, and sweating.

Thyroid diseases can also cause inflammation of the muscles and tissue around the eyes, leading to bulging eyes, double vision, dry eyes, and eye pain.

Eyelid Disorders

Eyelid disorders that affect the skin folds covering the eye include the following:

  • Ptosis: When the upper eyelid is drooping
  • Entropion: When the upper or lower eyelid turns inward.
  • Ectropion: When the lower eyelid sags and turns out, exposing the eyeball.
  • Eyelid growths: When eyelid or face has abnormal growth.
  • Brow ptosis: When the eyebrows droop or sag.
  • Blepharoptosis: When there is excess eyelid skin or extra fat above and below the eyes.

Oculoplastic Procedures and Treatments

At EyesNY, we offer multiple treatment options to stop or slow the progression of diseases affecting the eyelid, orbital cavity, and tear ducts.

Treatment for Graves and Thyroid Disease

To treat the swelling around the eye tissue caused by graves and thyroid disease, EyesNY specialists offer treatment depending on the severity of the condition. Eye drops, avoiding irritants, and monitoring may be required for mild cases. 

For severe cases, your eye doctor may suggest undergoing oculoplastic surgery. This field of plastic surgery reconstructs the eyelids, eyebrows, tear ducts, and orbital cavity. Common oculoplastic surgeries include the following:

  • Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) removes excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids to improve the functionality and appearance of the eyes.
  • Ptosis surgery corrects drooping eyelids by tightening the muscles that surround the eye and orbital cavity. 
  • Brow lift helps to lift the eyebrows and reduce wrinkles and sagging skin around the eyes.
  • Orbital surgery treats fractures and tumors that occur in the socket surrounding the eye.
  • Tear duct surgery treats tear duct blockages, which can cause excessive tearing or infections.

Treatment for Eyelid Disorders

For eyelid disorders, oculoplastic surgery will focus on the restructuring of tissue and bone surrounding the eye. Surgery treatment will range within the options listed above.

Eye Surgery Recovery

Recovery time and side effects depend on your unique health conditions and the specific surgical procedure required. 

Most patients can return to regular activities within a few days after surgery. However, full recovery can take up to six weeks.
